Local ‘fairy godmothers’ helping grads

SEVERAL LOCALS are donating their time and facilities to help girls who otherwise couldn't afford go to prom and they are

GIRLS WHO are graduating this year and can’t afford to go to prom don’t have to worry about the high cost of a dress thanks to a group of locals who want to help out.

Donating their time and facilities for free to help out are Paula at Hairbusters, who will do the girls’ hair, Dee Dee at Terrace Beauty Nail Salon will do their nails and makeup, Marisa at Marisa’s Dress Making will do alterations and John of Spotless Cleaners will dry clean the dresses.

And if you have a gown to donate, it can be dropped off at M&M Meats.

Girls who receive a gown will be able to keep it.

And local Grade 12 student Amy Spencer is raising money for the brainchild behind the local idea, the Cinderella Project, based in Vancouver, which gives gowns to less fortunate girls who otherwise couldn’t go to prom.

Spencer, who is doing this because she hates how girls compete to have the most expensive dress, most expensive limousine etc. when others can’t afford a dress, has said if she raises $1,000, she will wear a plastic bag to prom.
