Hundreds of Saint Joseph-area girls will shop for a prom dress at Cinderella’s Closet this weekend, and won’t pay a thing. Kappy Hodges of the Junior League is coordinating the program. She says a prom dress, shoes, jewelry, and an evening bag can cost $300 or more, and many families can’t afford that.
New and gently-used dresses are donated at the AFL-CIO Community Center, 1203 North Sixth Street. That’s where the girls will make their selections this Saturday and next Saturday starting at 9 am. Hodges says about 200 girls were outfitted for the prom at Cinderella’s Closet last year.
