The annual Cinderella Project used to take months and months to plan. But, seeing that this is the 17th year for the event (we date back to 2001!) and our 14th year volunteering for the event, we like to think it’s a well-oiled machine.
We are now able to knock out the planning of this incredible event in just two short months. So, 2017, here we come!
This year’s event will be held on the second Saturday in March — March 11, 2017. Go ahead, mark your calendar now. We’ll be hosting again at John Wesley United Methodist Church. This location is perfect: large auditorium which transforms into the boutique, lots of free parking, and the most wonderful church staff (hey, Stephanie and Mr. Green!) that helps make this run seamlessly.
We have some thank yous to dole out:
First, thank you to Danielle at Ross Printing for helping edit and print our posters. We have one soliciting donations and another inviting the young ladies to the event. Please share with any and everyone you think wants to be involved (donations, volunteers, attend). Here they are:
How lucky are we that such wonderful local businesses support this event?
A final thank you goes out to Rachel McKenna, owner of The Trunk Show, for her annual monetary contribution to our event. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, we encourage everyone to support local businesses that support local nonprofits.
Stay tuned for additional details about the 2017 Cinderella Project.
Don’t forget to like us on Facebook! A simply “share” can go a long way in increasing awareness of our event resulting in additional donations, volunteers, and young ladies attending!
