Cinderella Project seeks applications for Cinderella for a Day

Headline: The Cinderella Project of Maine is excited to once again looking for a Cinderella for a Day! We are seeking one special young woman who exhibits our core value of giving back to the community to be pampered with a special day of prom-preparation. The girl who is chosen for this honor will receive: a donation to a charity of her choice in her name, a prom package including hair, makeup, and other prom related services, and first choice of all Cinderella Project gowns.

The winner of the Cinderella for a Day package will be someone who is a humanitarian, caring, and kind. She should be someone who gives back or contributes positively to her community (or plans to) and is a high school girl attending prom in Maine. An application can be found online at Applications are due by midnight on March 16, 2014.

The Cinderella Project of Maine promotes a positive body image and increased self esteem by uniting girls in the state of Maine with fabulous and free new and gently used prom gowns. The gowns will be given away to any girl in need- all totally free with one stipulation- we ask the recipients to “pay it forward” and do a good deed for someone else.

The Belfast 2014 giveaway will be Saturday, April 5, 2014 from 9am to 2pm in the Reny’s Plaza in Belfast. The Gardiner giveaway will be Saturday, April 26, 2014 at Johnson Hall, 280 Water Street in Gardiner from 9am-2pm. There is absolutely no cost for any of the dresses, jewelry, or accessories. Dressing rooms will be available to try on gowns, and Cinderella Project staff and other community volunteers will be on hand to assist with the selection process.
