WORTHINGTON, Ohio — A nonprofit is helping students in central Ohio obtain what they need to go to prom this year with a free pop-up boutique.
The Fairy Goodmothers Cinderalla’s Closet Boutique will be open up for two weekends in March to provide students wanting to go to prom with the proper attire.
The nonprofit says the closet will be filled with about 3,000 new and gently worn prom gowns ranging from size 0 to 36, accessories and shoes. Students will also receive a goody bag with beauty and prom-themed items.
“We help defray the cost of Prom for the students we serve,” said Board President Jenna Homan. “However, even more important than the items themselves are the way the students feel when they are shopping and wearing their gown and accessories. Our goal is to bolster & support the self-esteem of each student we help. Every student deserves to feel like a Princess on their Prom night.”
Students are suggested to book their appointments for the following dates and times:
- March 11 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- March 12 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- March 18 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- March 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Students can register online to attend the pop-up shop by clicking here. Students will also need to bring proof that they’re in high school, such as a high school ID, report card, recent paper or project.
The pop-up shop is in the Shops at Worthington Place, located at 7227 North High Street.
Since 2005, Fairy Goodmothers is honored to have gifted more than 13,000 prom gowns to high school students in central Ohio.
