The North Charleston Dream Center is excited to announce that they will be hosting CINDERELLA DAY CHARLESTON on March 1, 2014 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m!!
For the seventh year in a row, girls (and guys) from all over the Charleston area can attend this event at 5505 N. Rhett Ave in North Charleston and attain everything that they need to make their high school proms a success! The day will be filled with a boutique and cafe atmosphere equipped with free dresses, refreshments, a personal assistant for every girl who “shops,” flowers, music and giveaways.
The North Charleston Dream Center has once again partnered with businesses and stylists to provide dresses, shoes, jewelry, bags, and wraps all for FREE. We will have make-up, nail and hair professionals offering their free services, products and tips and we will even have some local celebrities on hand to offer their assistance!
The center hopes to bring together teens from many schools and counties. The event’s goal is to treat every teen, regardless of financial status, like royalty for the day while meeting a need at the same time.
Local businesses, along with hundreds of community members, have rallied around the event and have donated more than 800 dresses as well as shoes, bras, bags and jewelry items. In addition, local vendors have supplied gift certificates, makeovers, corsages, floral arrangements and more to be raffled off to the teens in attendance!
Participation is free. Friends and families are welcome. Light refreshments will be provided.
Since ABC News 4’s weather genius, Dave Williams, will be onsite day-of as our emcee, we will be able to broadcast out the very latest weather forecast closer to this Saturday’s event but I wanted to go ahead and post that we will not be deterred by the potential of rainy weather at all. We have a BEAUTIFUL 40 x 40 tent this year that has been donated for our cafe/waiting area so we are 100% committed to making the day perfect, RAIN OR SHINE!
And remember, we are still accepting donations (shoes, bags, jewelry) right up until Friday, March 2nd so check out our donation centers for the drop off location nearest you!
Can’t wait to see you there!!
