A Place Called Home’s 15th Annual Cinderella & Prince Charming Project Gives 1000 Underprivileged Teens the Royal Treatment For Senior Prom & Graduation
LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, March 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Instead of changing pumpkins into carriages, A Place Called Home (APCH), a non-profit youth and community center in South Central Los Angeles, will work its own fairy-godmother magic by hosting The Cinderella & Prince Charming Project on Friday, April 7th and Saturday, April 8th at 2830 S. Central Ave. Los Angeles, CA.
The two-day event provides teens from economically disadvantaged homes with the opportunity to attend their senior engagements, including prom and graduation, without the high expense of purchasing formal gowns, suits, shoes, and accessories.
“We are happy to provide 1,000 or more students with free formal wear so they can glitter on the outside, but APCH is also all about nurturing inner strength and beauty, so the event also includes motivational speakers and community service opportunities so the teens can share forward and make a difference in the world,” explained Jonathan Zeichner, Executive Director of APCH. “That’s where they really blossom into the princes and princesses they are.”
This year, the anticipated 1,000 teenage boys and girls in attendance will each have the opportunity to develop their inner and outer prince or princess and will receive help in selecting their attire, a free tailor for alterations, and hair and make-up tutorials.
But, what is the royal treatment without some royal life lessons? Influencers from the leading global style network, StyleHaul, the Latino Student Psychological Association of Pepperdine University and The Rotary Club of Los Angeles (LA5) will provide empowerment workshops to help the teens carry themselves with confidence as they enter adulthood beyond prom and graduation. Bank of America will also provide financial education such as budgeting and saving tips to put students on the path to a financially stable future. Major event sponsor StyleHaul will also provide prom makeup and hair tips, tricks, tutorials and makeovers inspired by and guided by some of their top social media creators.
Event sponsors include Stylehaul and The Rotary Club of Los Angeles (LA5). This event is also made possible through generous donations of new or gently used formal attire and accessories for both boys and girls. There is still a great need and donations are immensely appreciated and encouraged.
Top designers, vendors and boutiques, including Friar Tux, Fame and Partners, Bebe, Kendra Scott, as well as many generous individuals, donated thousands of new and gently used gowns, suits and accessories to the 2017 Cinderella & Prince Charming Project. Donations also come from all over L.A. and include support from: Bank of America, Wescom Credit Union, Harper Fox and South Pasadena High School’s Prom Perfect, The Shoe Crew, Apple, Key Elements PR, and Bank of The West to name a few. Special thanks to iHeartMedia and REAL 92.3, LA’s Home for Hip-Hop.
