The smile on her face told me we had made the right choice. She did a spin to show off her gown. It was perfect. This young lady along with over 100 others had arrived at Van Dyke Community Center bright and early in hopes of finding “the dress”. The Belle of the Ball program sponsored by the Junior League of Brooklyn “is an annual clothing and accessory drive to collect formal attire for teenage girls preparing for senior prom and other events. The program culminates with the “Day of Beauty,” a dress/accessory giveaway and ‘mini-makeover’ day.”
Last year I collected and donated items as well as volunteered at the Day of Beauty. I can’t even describe how awesome it was to see young ladies who may not have been able to afford dresses, find the dress of their dreams.
The annual event will take place this May and we are in the process of collecting gently used and new donations.
We are in need of:
Formal and semi-formal dresses
Please donate and let’s help these young ladies have the best prom nights ever!!!
