GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Prom dreams will come true this year for hundreds of high school girls in Minnesota, western Wisconsin and South Dakota.
Operation Glass Slipper, a non-profit organization, is dedicated to providing prom gowns and accessories at no charge to deserving teenagers.
This year Operation Glass Slipper is teaming up with Mobile Menders, a group of sewing volunteers to streamline the prom dress alteration needs.
Operation Glass Slipper founder and “Fairy Godmother”, Pam Philipp, and Mobile Menders founder, Michelle Ooley, talked about the annual two-day free event and to call for more volunteers.
More than one thousand qualifying high school junior and senior girls will get a free prom dress and matching accessories.
The princess event is Saturday, March 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, March 11 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Southdale Center in Edina.
Teenagers need a valid school ID and a signed referral form to be admitted to the event. However, walk-ins will be accepted until all prom dresses and accessories are handed out.
