It’s a really fun event, We get to help lots of girls do something they might not have been able to do because of various circumstances in their lives. Sometimes girls have financial issues or family issues that make it really difficult to afford a dress, so we are hear to help those ladies make that lifelong memory and do something just like the rest of their friends.
