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, Dickinson, and La Porte ISDs are referred by their Communities In Schools coordinators or school counselors based on individual circumstances.
Thanks to the help from community businesses and individuals, Assistance League of the Bay Area made prom dreams come true for 127 senior students in the spring of 2018.
Jill’s Fashions & Bridals allowed Assistance League of the Bay Area to purchase tuxedo rentals at cost so that young men attending program may be properly outfitted for that special evening. In addition, they donate numerous beautiful ball gowns and shoes for our lady shoppers on Boutique Days.
The magical evening was also made possible by support from Assisteens and two school districts, Clear Creek and Dickinson.
Boutique Days Held March 3, 4, 24, and 25, 2019
It’s wonderful to be a Fairy Godmother with Operation Cinderella and Cinderfella (for the guys).
Take a look at some of the moments captured on each of our Boutique Days that were hosted at our award-winning Resale Shop. Sixty-nine (69) happy clients walked out of our facility during those four days of service.
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.
