Cinderella Project Provides Prom Dresses for Girls in Need 

More than a hundred girls in need in the Belfast area will get the chance to look like a million bucks on prom night, thanks to the efforts of some special volunteers.Folks from The Cinderella Project set up shop at the Belfast Area High School Saturday, to give out prom dresses to those who can’t afford them.More than a hundred new and gently used dresses were donated for the project…along with shoes and accessories.Anyone in need of a dress could show up on Saturday and take their pick from all different categories…everything from short dresses to ballgowns and vintage.Student volunteers who helped out say it made them feel good to help their classmates who otherwise might not have been able to attend the prom. “There’s a lot of girls who can’t afford a prom dress…and they can come here and find a fabulous dress because every girl deserves to look beautiful on prom night.” “Not everyone can go out and buy a $400 dress…and some people just don’t feel it’s necessary. So you can come here and there’s some great dresses and you don’t have to pay anything. It’s a really good program.”>The Ciao Bella Bridal Boutique donated twenty brand new dresses to The Cinderella Project.Everyone who took home a dress was encouraged to “pay it forward” in the future by helping someone else in need.
