Making princesses for prom, Cinderella events give girls glamour
CHARLESTON, S.C. ( WCIV) -- Organizers of Cinderella Day created a special moment of change for a girl to see herself in a new light. The goal: to fit 400 girls with new or gently used dresses, shoes and jewelry they can wear to prom. The best part is, it comes at zero cost to families. The young ladies were also treated to mini makeovers complete with up-do tips, manicures and styling. "Every year I'm blown away because we come and we think this event is about prom," said Cinderella Day Co-Chair Rebecca Linenger. We think that this event is about dresses and shoes and sparkling things and it really isn't. It's about supporting our community. It's about loving our girls and making them feel seen, making them feel gorgeous, giving them a moment of self-esteem and that to me is invaluable." If you missed the boutique style shopping spree, there's another Cinderella event this weekend.This one, called the Cinderella Project, is being held on March 14 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at John Wesley United Methodist Church, located at 626 Savannah Hwy.
