Princess Closet is a non-profit organization that holds dress drives and helps the young Cinderella’s of Chicago find the perfect prom gown. Their mission is to provide every high school girl a prom dress. To date they have helped dress over 800 young ladies!
The International Pageant System is helping Princess Closet in their efforts. Every year during orientation at nationals, the contestants are encouraged to bring dresses to donate. This year at the 2011 pageant I donated 15 dresses to Princess Closet! It was so fulfilling to know that I was a “fairy godmother” to 15 girls.
Dresses that I donated to Princess Closet at the 2011 Miss Teen International Pageant in Chicago, IL
All 2012 contestants: I challenge you to match or double the amount of dresses I brought! I can’t wait to see how many dresses the 2012 Miss and Miss Teen International contestants donate to help send high school girls to prom!
