Every Girl Deserves to be a Princess

Ellen Goode-Neeson wants to help low-income girls attend prom.

Little girls play at dress-up all the time and when it comes to prom, it’s no different.  It’s instinctive – girls just want to look pretty, but not everyone can afford prom night finery. 

A group of women calling themselves, “Chloë’s Closet” has come to the rescue because they believe every girl deserves to be a princess. The brain child of Ellen Goode-Neeson, she explains.

Chloë’s Closet is having a fundraiser February 3rd to help provide prom dresses for those girls that can’t afford one.  They are asking for donations of used prom dresses, shoes, jewelry, accessories, and cash to make those prom dreams come true.

The fundraiser is geared for those girls that cannot afford a dress. Working with Sheridan High School, Neeson indicates that only those students that fit that category will be allowed to pick out a dress on March 26th, an event which Chloë’s Closet is calling “All Dressed Up.”

Neeson herself went to prom, but it wasn’t without a struggle.

The February 3rd fundraiser will take place in The Kula Space, located above “Over the Moon,” located at 176 N. Main from 6-9:30 p.m.  Bring those forgotten dresses left hanging unused in your closet and all the finery that night to donate and help send those girls that want to go to prom, plus you’ll enjoy some really great appetizers.  Dresses can also be taken to the high school.

For more information call Neeson at 763-1799.
