High school girls looking for affordable prom dresses can shop at LACASA Center’s Cinderella’s Closet, which opens for prom season on Thursday, April 6, 2017, and runs for two consecutive weekends.

This eco-friendly shopping experience offers high school girls a chance to buy prom dresses at vintage prices while helping charity. All party dresses are just $25 and proceeds go to LACASA Center.

Cinderella’s Closet raises awareness about the link between alcohol and substance abuse and the increased incidents of dating abuse and sexual assault—especially on special celebratory nights.

Young women shopping at the boutique are invited to sign “My Promise,” a pledge to stay substance-free on prom night. The pledge encourages girls to remain clear headed on their memorable evenings. Shoppers who sign the pledge are entered in special raffle drawings.

This year, the Brighton Tux Shop, which is located two doors down from The Closet, is offering high school young men $10 off suit or tux rentals when they sign the “My Promise” pledge.

Cinderella’s Closet is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 3-8 p.m. and on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to  4 p.m. Dates for the boutique are April 6, 7, 8 and 9 and April 13, 14, and 15, 2017. For the first time, The Closet will be open on a Sunday, April 9, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Dress scholarships are available, and shoppers may discreetly ask the attendant at the cashier counter for scholarship information.

Cinderella’s Closet refreshes its look each season and provides a comfortable atmosphere for girls to shop for dream dresses. Shopping is reserved for students only, and they will be asked to present school IDs at check out.

The boutique is held at Snedicor’s Green Earth Cleaners, 8688 W. Grand River Ave., in Brighton.

Funds raised from the boutique provide help and hope for vulnerable children and adults from Livingston County who are victims of interpersonal violence. Learn more at lacasacenter.org.
