Are you – or a junior or senior you know – in need of an affordable prom dress? Well the Fairy Godmothers of Greater Rochester has got you covered. On Saturday, March 30 at the Riverside Convention Center the Fairy Godmothers of Greater Rochester will be holding their annual prom dress fair.
The Fairy Godmothers of Greater Rochester was founded in January 2004 after mothers Rene Spallina and Cynthia Jackson were inspired by a program that provides affordable dresses to financially challenged high school girls. The two mothers set out to create their own program for the high school girls in the Rochester community. And since then have provided prom dresses to an average of 500 high school girls a year and the number keeps on growing.
All prom dresses provided are donated by people in the Rochester area, each prom dress is on sale for $5 from sizes 0-30 no matter the size, length or style of the dress. Also on sale will be accessories that go for $1 apiece.
Shopping for a prom can be overwhelming at times so each young lady will be aided by a personal shopper that will help then choose a dress for their magical night out. At the end of their shopping experience each young lady will be given a goody bag and a $10 gift card to Shoe Depot.
So save the date Saturday, March 30 from 10am-4pm at the Riverside Convention Center located at 123 East Main St. 14604.
