Operation Prom Girl Is On the Move!

We are so pleased to be able to say that Operation Prom Girl 2016 is going to take place this year at Mountain View Church of Wildomar, where we have rented the absolute perfect facility for the event on April 2. We have many wonderful volunteers that have stepped up to the plate to swing into spring and give their hearts to this wonderful outreach that is a mere 3 years old, and growing steadily! We are also super excited to announce that not only is Lake Elsinore/Wildomar school district on board and sending referrals for girls in need of assistance, but now we have Perris school district and their superintendents stepping in to not only support OPG, but send us girls who will qualify for this incredible event! There is such a need out there! We know how hard it is to get to prom. I did not attend mine, and I had someone step up to assist my daughter as I was a single parent who worked many hours as a makeup artist. I still felt the sting of the costs associated with prom and was blessed when Bettyann Behr picked up the pieces that were too heavy of a load for me and helped make my daughter’s special day a reality, 4 years or so ago. A big thank you to the woman who helped and also was instrumental in my vision to help all girls in need. Operation Prom Girl will ALWAYS be more than just a dress and no young lady, no matter the age, will ever be left behind!

The Dresses and Dreams Project is 501 (c)3 non-profit organization to inspire vulnerable teen girls and women to love and value themselves. We provide resources, referrals and empowerment through workshops, classes, mentoring and community collaboration to girls and women year- round at a mind, body, and spirit level, with a special emphasis on self-love, healthy relationships, and integrity. We hold an annual event called Operation Prom Girl where we have provided over 1200 prom dresses to high school girls and assisted with military balls and events for special learners. We also donate dresses to all women who have a need. Our mission is to empower women through the magic of a beautiful dress, and inspire them to live to their full potential and purpose.
