Help Connect Enchanted Closet to Teens Needing Prom Dresses
Organization is enchanting lives and making prom dreams come true for 13th consecutive year
The Prom Dress Giveaway event will be held as follows:
Saturday, March 14 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
4800 Briarcliff Road
For the past 13 prom seasons, from 2003 to 2015, the Enchanted Closet has outfitted nearly 6,000 metro Atlanta girls in need for special occasions. During the Prom Dress Giveaway, the Enchanted Closet offers a boutique-style setting and provides personal shoppers – people who are volunteers – to help each girl choose that perfect dress, accessories and makeup for their special night.
The Enchanted Closet is collecting donations of prom attire and accessories to help outfit girls. The organization needs new or gently used formal dresses that are clean, in good condition and teen appropriate. Dresses size 0-6 and 14 and up are really in need as nearly half of the girls registered for this year’s Prom Dress Giveaway requires this size range.
Donations of prom accessories such as jewelry, handbags, wraps and shoes, and gift certificates for businesses such as restaurants, florists, limos and hair and nail salons are also needed. Donation drop-off points are located throughout the metro Atlanta area and are listed on http://enchantedcloset.org/
