How Does it Work? 
Throughout the year the Fairy Godmothers have been collecting gowns, shoes, jewelry, make up and other items for The Prom Fair. When you are there a personal shopper, one of our many volunteers, will escort you as you pick out a gown and the accessories you need for the prom. Most of the gowns have never been worn before while others have been worn only once. Gowns cost $10 and accessories are $2.     You can walk out with everything you need for the prom for under $20!!
Prom Fair is open only to Juniors and Seniors going to a Junior or Senior Prom. A Student ID is required for admission into the fair.  Accessories are available only to those buying a gown.  Please read all the rules regarding entrance to the fair.
The following rules will be in effect at the fair:

  • This program is ONLY for girls with financial hardships. It is designed to help girls who, without our help, will not be able to attend their Junior or Senior Proms.

  • You must be a JUNIOR or SENIOR girl currently enrolled in a high school with a financial hardship.

  • You must be able and available to come, IN PERSON, to our event.  Others are not permitted to shop for girls unless the girls are physically present.

  • Each girl must have and present a VALID STUDENT ID

  • Each girl will be accompanied by a volunteer personal shopper at all times while shopping

  • Students will be asked to wait on a first, come, first served basis until a volunteer personal shopper becomes available before she can begin shopping. Please plan accordingly (bring something to read, don’t make other commitments)

  • Each girl is permitted to bring ONE additional female guest (relative or friend) to shop with her. Small children are not permitted in the shopping area.

  • Gowns/accessories are given on a first-come first-serve basis.

  • Each girl is allowed to purchase ONE gown, plus related accessories and makeup, if available.

  • Although we make every effort to help you select the dress of your dreams, we cannot possibly guarantee you will find a dress. Just like shopping at the mall, our "store" may not have the style and size you need.
