    The Glass Slipper

    Friday, February 19th 2016 - 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    Friday Feb. 19 from 4pm-8pm and Saturday Feb 20 from 9am-noon.

    The Glass Slipper Project gives away free prom dresses and accessories to high school students in the Mitchell and surrounding areas. The Glass Slipper collects newer formal dresses and accessories and provides them, free of charge, to students who are unable to purchase their own prom attire.  Students do not need to prove any type of financial hardship in order to get a dress from us. We distribute the dresses at the Glass Slipper “boutique” each prom season, where each student receives individual assistance from a volunteer “personal shopper” as she shops for the dress of her dreams!

    We are funded 100% by donations and it’s all volunteers! Every donation we get is used for advertising, printing of flyers, radio ads, and purchasing gently worn prom dresses, jewelry and shoes for the event.

    Prom Dresses, Shoes, & Accessories can be dropped off at the Wesleyan Church Tuesday–Friday 9am-4pm. If you don’t have a prom dress to donate but you’d still like to be a part of the Glass Slipper you can also buy a gently used/new Prom dress to donate also!

    For more information on how you can become a volunteer or a sponsor for this event, call 605.999.8275 or Find us on Facebook
