Cinderella's Closet in Elgin open to all high school girls
Cinderella doesn't just exist in a Disney movie. This spring, every high schoolgirl in the Fox Valley will have a chance to feel like a fairy tale princess.
On March 17, Elgin Junior Service Board and the YWCA Elgin will help make dreams come true for hundreds of modern-day Cinderellas at the eighth annual Cinderella's Closet event — a fun formalwear boutique where high school girls can "shop" for dresses, jewelry, purses ... everything that a girl might need for prom.
A $5 donation is appreciated to shop, with 100 percent of the donations going to support YWCA Elgin youth programs.
At the event, girls are greeted by "Fairy Godmothers," who serve as their personal shoppers as they select from thousands of beautiful dresses — all current styles, many new with tags, in sizes ranging from petites to plus sizes. Once each girl has found her dream dress, she can then "shop" for jewelry and other accessories to make her outfit complete.
To be eligible for entry, girls need only be a current high school student with proof of enrollment. Any girl currently enrolled in high school is welcome to attend Cinderella's Closet.
The eighth annual "Cinderella's Closet" event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 17, at the YWCA Elgin, 220 E. Chicago St., Elgin.
Volunteers are welcome. For details on the program, or if you are interested in volunteering, visit ElginJSB.org or ywcaelgin.org, or call the YWCA Elgin at (847) 742-7930.
