Midlothian Junior Women’s Club Kicks Off
2011 Cinderella Dreams Project
Cinderella said it best: “In dreams you lose your heartaches”. Since 2006, the Midlothian Junior Women’s Club has helped many area teenage girls overcome the heartache of not being able to afford a prom dress due to financial hardships.
This year the MJWC, Puritan Cleaners and 103.7 The River have teamed up for another successful Cinderella Dreams project. The project provides gowns and accessories, free of charge, to any girl who, just like Cinderella, needs help getting a gown for the ball.
Parents and their daughters, who have previously attended the shopping event, have expressed their gratitude and relief knowing that the burden of buying a dress has been lifted by the Cinderella Dreams project.
The shopping event is being held on two weekends at The Village Marketplace Shopping Center at 13172 Midlothian Tnpk. in Midlothian. The shopping event will be open on Friday, March 18th from 5:00-8:00 P.M. and Saturday, the 19th from 11:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M. The shopping event will continue the next weekend on Saturday, March 26th from 11:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. Girls will be helped on a first-come, first-served basis. A donation of $5.00 is suggested.
The Cinderella Dreams project is currently accepting donations of new or gently used gowns and accessories at all metro-Richmond YMCAs and Puritan Cleaners.
