Boutique Days 2024

Assistance League of the Bay Area hosted its Operation Cinderella Boutique Days from February through May. One hundred seven (107) girls were provided prom dresses and matching accessories, including shoes, a handbag, and jewelry.

Thirty-six (36) boys received a custom-made suit with a shirt, tie, and shoes.

Community Assistance

Thanks to the help from community businesses and individuals, Assistance League of the Bay Area can make prom dreams come true.

Dress Galaxy worked with our young men to outfit them with custom suits.  Additionally, they selected a shirt, tie, and shoes to complete their outfit.

Hairstylists Crystal Whaley – Hidden Palms, Santa Fe, and College of the Mainland Cosmetology provided complimentary salon services.

Chapter members Roseann Carothers and Mavis Irvan created donated 100 corsages and 50 boutonnières.

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 Boutique Day.  Students have a fairytale time trying on gowns and being pampered by member volunteers who assist as personal shoppers.

Our male shoppers travel to Dress Galaxy in League City to be measured for a custom-made suit and receive it along with a shirt, tie, and shoes.

Students from Clear Creek, Deer Park, Dickinson, Hitchcock, La Porte, Santa Fe, and Texas City 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 and Deer Park also participate in preparation for the district-wide Military Ball.  They are referred to 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.
