SPECIAL TO THE T&D

COLUMBIA — On prom night, every girl deserves to feel like Cinderella, but for some, finances get in the way. This year, young women in Orangeburg can “shop” for gently-worn dresses, jewelry and shoes at no cost through the Cinderella Project, sponsored by the S.C. Bar Young Lawyers Division.

The Orangeburg boutique will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, March 10, at Catch the Vision International, 1425 Russell St. Students from all area schools are invited to attend; they must bring their student IDs.

“The Cinderella Project gives us a chance to give students confidence with a free, beautiful dress and shoes,” said Erica Lybrand, YLD’s Cinderella Project Committee chair. “It’s a huge relief for parents who no longer have to worry about the financial burdens of prom.”

The Cinderella Project is celebrating its 17th year with boutiques in Aiken, Anderson, Charleston, Columbia, Greenville, Greenwood and Orangeburg.

“Prom is one of the most memorable events for high school students,” Lybrand said. “It is truly a blessing to make these memories extra special.”

This year, the YLD invites area residents and businesses to be a fairy godmother and make a student's dreams come true.
 
The Cinderella Project provides free, gently-worn prom dresses for students who lack the resources to buy a gown for their high school prom. You can be a fairy godmother by donating clean dresses in all sizes, evening bags, jewelry, shoes and other accessories.
  
Donate at any of the following locations by March 6:
  • Avinger Law Firm, 2718 W. Cleveland St., Elloree
  • Orangeburg County Solicitor’s Office, Courthouse Basement, 151 Docket St., Orangeburg
  • TRMC Canteen, 3000 St. Matthews Rd., Orangeburg
Students can shop at the Orangeburg Boutique for a free gown with a personal stylist from 9 to 11 a.m. on March 10. Don't forget your student ID.
 
“Prom is usually one of the most memorable times for high school students, and it is truly a blessing to make these memories extra special,” Lybrand said.
