The Cinderella Project made its fourth glamorous appearance at Stamford High School on Thursday, March 23. New and gently used prom dresses were sold in the career center for $20, in addition to jewelry priced at $5.

Long-time Stamford resident Holly Hyman is the brains behind the event. Her mission is to make prom an accessible and affordable night for every student, regardless of their economic situation.

While $20 is already an incredible price for designer dresses, Hyman actually had a list from guidance of girls who qualify to take home a dress completely free of charge. In fact, all of the proceeds raised from the event will go toward purchasing prom tickets for economically disadvantaged students in Stamford.

Holly and her dresses are hoping to continue spreading the prom cheer as they travel to across town to Westhill in the coming days.
Since all of the items Hyman sells are donated by either friends and family or local dress shops like A Step Ahead, she kindly asks that the dresses be returned to her after prom to make someone else’s princess night a reality next year. If you would like to donate a dress to the Cinderella Project or return one you purchased from it previously, you can contact Holly Hyman at hhman@optonline.net.

 

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article stated that the Cinderella Project was in its second year at Stamford high.  In fact, this is the fourth year the event has taken place.
