The I&C EMPOWERMENT
In 2022, our Prom Dress Fairy Project was launched on a large scale. Redan Recreation Center helped us host young ladies from 12 area high schools who were in search of the perfect prom dress. We are happy to say, that we provided 528 dresses. Most of the participants came from the Metro Atlanta area, and a few that came from North Georgia and as far away as Jacksonville, FL. Here are a few of the happy faces . . .
In 2023, our Prom Dress Fairy Project continued at Redan Recreation Center where we hosted 901 young ladies from 31 high schools who heard about us from past participants or their HS Prom Coordinator. Our ladies dazzled on the red carpet. This year we have ladies from as far as Alabama, Kansas, Rhode Island, and St. Croix US Virgin Islands - everyone when home happy.
2 best friends from Clarkston High School attended. Each of them came away with 2 dresses a piece, as none of us could decided which was the best.

Not only do the young ladies get to choose a beautiful gown, but they also had the chance to select a pair of shoes, makeup, jewelry and other accessories.
