  • The dresses, jewelry and accessories are distributed at “boutiques” each prom season, where each student receives individual assistance from a volunteer “personal shopper” as she shops for her dress
  • The boutiques are open to high school juniors and seniors in Chicagoland and other surrounding areas.
  • Students do not have to register – just bring a valid student ID or other proof of enrollment.
  • One parent/guardian/chaperone may attend with each student.
  • Students receive the dresses and accessories free of charge and do not have to return them.
  • The boutiques have thousands of dresses – more than 150 racks with dozens of dresses on each rack.
  • The boutique also has three rooms full of shoes, plus rooms for makeup, jewelry and accessories.
  • Minor alterations are offered on-site
