Boutique Days 2022

Assistance League of the Bay Area hosted its Operation Cinderella Boutique Days from February through early May. Ninety (90) girls were provided prom dresses and matching accessories including shoes, a handbag, and jewelry.

Twenty-eight (28) boys received tuxedos and accessory rentals to attend their prom.

Community Assistance

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

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.

College of the Mainland Cosmetology, Paul Mitchell the School Clear Lake, and Graceful Glamour Beauty, provided complimentary salon services to thirty-seven (37) young women.

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 are outfitted by Al’s Formal Wear at the Baybrook location.

Students from Clear Creek, Deer Park, Dickinson, La Porte, and Santa Fe 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.
