Free Prom Dresses Needed

Brian Morris, Principal at Paloma Valley High School reminds us of their "Princess for an Evening" program which supplies free formal dresses to girls attending high school prom.

Right now they're collecting formal dresses from the public, and then handing them out later on this Spring.

Here's what he had to say...

"Last year, we collected formal dresses during the winter for students to choose from and wear to the prom in the spring. We gave the girls the dresses for free. This was a huge success and saved our girls a lot of money.

I'm running this program again, we call it "Princess for an Evening." I'd like to run something on Menifee 24/7 asking the community to donate any previously worn formal dresses. They can simply bring them to the front office and give them to Diane Pursley, my secretary or contact her and we will come pick them up.

  1. What a wonderful gesture! My formal dresses would look like surviving the Titanic after all these years, but I just hope the ones in the community respond more than ever! What a heartwarming endeavor by the school ! Thank you !

  2. This is a nice idea. I may have several dresses I may never fit in again! They are nice dresses. It would be fun to see them go to someone. Will we be able to see who gets them but still remain anonymous?
    On another note, Steve, are you going to post something on the Californian article that mentioned the 20 people the School District is looking for to sit on a committee regarding budget cuts? The deadline to apply is Sat. We need some rational, experienced, educated, smart, and creative people to step up and apply.
