In the spirit of the show, The Fairy Godmother Project, the Majestic Theatre and the company of Rodgers + Hammerstein’s ‘CINDERELLA’ are inviting the people of San Antonio to donate dresses for girls in need so they can feel like a princess at prom. From now until Sunday April 10 the public can donate formal and semi-formal dresses in all sizes for teens as well as shoes, purses and costume jewelry. Donations must be in good condition and must be on hangers and dry cleaned prior to drop off. Drop-off locations include the Majestic Theatre box office and Lifeway Christian Book store. The box office is located at 226 East Houston Street and is open Monday through Friday from 10a.m. to 5p.m. On performance nights they will be accepting donations until show time. Lifeway Christian Book Store is located at The Rim at 17802 La Cantera Parkway and will be accepting prom dresses only on Saturday March 12.
The Fairy Godmother Project is a non-profit organization headed by Carmen De La Rosa. Its purpose is to provide prom dresses to San Antonio high school girls who cannot afford them. On Saturday April 30 there will be a free conference for girls at Palo Alto College and the organization needs gently used and new prom dresses of all sizes and styles for a giveaway that will be taking place on that day. More information about the donations and the conference is available online.
