The planning is now underway for 2010’s Cinderella Day!! Set your calendars and call your girlfriends–we are going to need all of the publicity and donations we can get to make March 6, 2010 from 10 am until 2 pm the most special day of these girls’ lives!!
If you have never been involved with Cinderella Day before, let me explain how it works. Seacoast Church’s North Charleston Dream Center is already involved in reaching out to the North Charleston area and meeting the needs of the community there. Through this partnership, a need was recognized 3 years ago and the Dream Center stepped up to meet that need. Prom is a pivotal time in a young girls life but for hundreds of girls around the Lowcountry, it is simply a time where the needs of their families outweigh the importance of buying a new dress and feeling beautiful. What an opportunity this is for the community to step up and build self esteem!!! In 2008, we had 120 girls attend the Dream Center’s Cinderella Day and last year we had 180 girls attend. In 2010, our goal is to fit 300 girls with gently-used, gorgeous dresses, shoes, and jewelry that they can wear to prom…all for FREE!!
In addition to dress donations, we are looking for make-up artists, hair stylists, jewelry and shoe donations, corsages, limos…anything that will help contribute to this memorable occasion. We need YOU to get involved, spread the word, and help get as many donations as possible! Pass the word around to anyone you think would like to help or anyone who could benefit from attending this event.
