Princess Closet Fundraiser


In an earlier blog, I talked about the Princess Closet & what a wonderful organization it is! In case you missed that post, I’ll refresh your memory. Princess Closet is an organization that the International Pageant system works with to help underprivileged girls get FREE dresses to wear to their prom! Isn’t that amazing? Last year there were 3 Dream Day Events where the girls get to shop for their dress and over 250 girls went home with the dress of their dreams!


With the Owner of Princess Closet

Putting on events such as those cost money of course, so I flew to Chicago to support the first Princess Closet Fundraiser. It was such a wonderful event for prom goers – there were dresses available at a discount, jewelry vendors, flowers vendors, and anything else a prom goer would need in order to make their prom night perfect!

All of the Models

There was also a fashion show of some of the dresses that were available for purchase, & I got to be a part of it! I wasn’t able to get there in the morning because I was at the Children’s Memorial Hospital, but the other models got to get their hair and makeup done up for the event! Among those other models were Miss Teen Illinois International Brandy Sitar, Miss Illinois International Aubry Bozzano, and a former Miss Illinois International 2009 Christine Boll.

It was so great to meet these wonderful ladies and to be a part of this event!



Remember to bring dresses to donate when you get to Chicago!
