On March 19, 2016, 9am – 2pm, the YWCA Elgin and the Elgin Junior Service Board will help make dreams come true for hundreds of modern-day Cinderella’s at the twelfth annual “Cinderella’s Closet” event ~ a fun formalwear boutique where high school girls can “shop” for dresses, jewelry, purses, shoes and make-up (while supplies last) for a $15 suggested donation.

**New Addition** This year Cinderella’s Closet has added prom related vendors such as: florists, hair stylists, make-up artists, etc.

At the event, girls are greeted by “Fairy Godmothers” who serve as their personal shoppers as they select from hundreds of beautiful dresses –all current styles, many new with tags, in sizes ranging from petites to plus sizes. Once each girl has found her dream dress, she can select jewelry and other accessories to complete her outfit.

To be eligible for entry, girls need to be a current high school student with proof of enrollment. Any girl currently enrolled in high school is welcome to attend Cinderella’s Closet.

Donations are currently being accepted. We are looking for new or gently-used dresses especially in sizes 16 and up, new jewelry and new wrapped make-up. Students who donate a recently-worn prom dress are eligible to receive a coupon for $5 off their next purchase.

The “Cinderella’s Closet” Prom Event will be held Saturday, March 19, 2016 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the YWCA Elgin located at 220 East Chicago Street, Elgin. For more information about the Cinderella’s Closet event or volunteer opportunities, visit or call the YWCA Elgin at 847.742.7930.
