"No Girl Should Be Denied The Opportunity To Attend Her High School Dance Because Of Financial Difficulties"
Belle of the Ball Project
Belle of the Ball Project is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization which provides homecoming and prom dresses to in-need, low-income high school girls.
Established in 2003, Belle of the Ball Project mission statement is "no girl should be denied the opportunity to attend her high school dance because of financial difficulties.” Belle of the Ball has given away more than 4,500 quality dresses and countless shoes, purses, and accessories to date.
Girls are referred to us by school guidance counselors, teachers, churches, other non-profit organizations, foster care, the guardian ad litem system, and other civic organizations. We highly respect the honor system and the girl's anonymity.
We have almost 4,000 quality dresses in our inventory. We have shopping days in the fall and spring, arranged around high school homecoming and prom dates. Designated shopping days and times are the ONLY time a teen can receive a dress. Appointments are not necessary nor do we make appointments.
We have no paid employees and are a 100% volunteer organization. Dresses and accessories are donated to us by individuals and businesses.
