Cinderella Project of Shreveport will host its sixth annual Prom Dress Giveaway on March 17.

The Cinderella Project of Shreveport will host its sixth annual Prom Dress Giveaway where any junior and senior girls from Bienville, Bossier, Caddo, Claiborne, Desoto, Natchitoches, Red River, and Webster Parish will shop for a free prom dress. The Cinderella Project helps these young women attend their prom with style and confidence. Since 2013, the Cinderella Project has given away more then 600 prom dresses to local girls.

Each student signs up for a 30-minute shopping appointment and is paired with a volunteer personal shopper. The personal shopper guides the student through the dress inventory  from sizes 0-32 and helps her try on and select a dress.  Students try on gowns in individual dressing rooms and view themselves in floor length mirrors just as if they were shopping in a boutique.

Students are required to bring a report card or a letter from a teacher, counselor or principal confirming your enrollment at an area high school to the giveaway. Students do not need to provide proof of financial need; eligibility for a free dress is on the honor system.

The giveaway will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 17 at Ayers Career College, 8820 Jewella Ave.
