Prom is a core experience for many high school students, but not all families can afford to purchase a prom dress. Fairy Goodmothers helps high school students find their dream prom dress for free during two weekends in March 2023.
The central Ohio non-profit started in 2005, and hosts Cinderella’s Closet Boutique to allow girls to shop for their perfect prom dress. The boutique offers thousands of dresses between sizes 0-36. In 2023, over 90% of the dresses are brand new!
How to get free prom dresses through Fairy Goodmothers
