Cinderella Project seeks applications for Cinderella for a Day

Mar 15, 2013

The Cinderella Project of Maine is excited to announce a new initiative this year — Cinderella for a Day! It is seeking a young woman who has given back to the community to be pampered with a special day of prom-preparation. The girl who is chosen for this honor will receive a donation to a charity of her choice in her name, a prom package including hair, makeup, and other prom related services, and first choice of all Cinderella Project gowns.

The winner of the Cinderella for a Day package should be someone who gives back or contributes positively to her community — or plans to — and is a high school girl attending prom in Maine. An application can be found online at Applications are due by midnight on Sunday, March 17.

The Cinderella Project of Maine promotes a positive body image and increased self esteem by uniting girls in the state of Maine with fabulous and free new and gently used prom gowns. The gowns will be given away to any girl in need- all totally free with one stipulation- we ask the recipients to “pay it forward” and do a good deed for someone else.

The 2013 giveaway will be Saturday, April 6, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Reny’s Plaza in Belfast. There is absolutely no cost for any of the dresses, jewelry or accessories. Dressing rooms will be available to try on gowns, and Cinderella Project staff and other community volunteers will be on hand to assist with the selection process.
