Boutique Days 2020
Prior to spring break and before the school year was unexpectedly interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Assistance League of the Bay Area began its Operation Cinderella Boutique Days. Twenty-five senior girls were provided prom attire and eleven girls received formal attire required for the Clear Creek ISD JROTC Military Ball.
Thanks to the help from community businesses and individuals, Assistance League of the Bay Area is able to make prom dreams come true.
Jill’s Fashions & Bridals donated numerous beautiful ball gowns and shoes for our lady shoppers on Boutique Days.
Al’s Formal Wear in Webster has permitted young men to shop for a tuxedo and accessories as well as shoes and assessed the chapter a lower cost for those items.
Making Dreams Come True
Through Operation Cinderella, a philanthropic program that began in 2006, prom night is made possible for high school senior girls and boys. The chapter collects new and gently used formal dresses, shoes, purses, and jewelry for the Boutique Day. Students have a fairytale time trying on gowns and being pampered by member volunteers who assist as personal shoppers. Our male shoppers are outfitted by Al’s Formal Wear at the Baybrook location.
Students from Clear Creek, Deer Park, Dickinson, and La Porte ISDs are referred by their Communities In Schools Student Support Specialists or school counselors based on individual circumstances.
Female students in the JROTC program in Clear Creek also participate in preparation for the district-wide Military Ball. They are referred in the same manner.
Donations Accepted Year Round
Although Operation Cinderella’s busiest times are in the spring of each year, it’s never too early to donate a new or gently-used evening dress, jewelry, shoes, or a purse to make our senior girls’ prom dreams come true.
