HEAR HOW THE FAIRY GODMOTHER’S OF GREATER ROCHESTER AND ONE LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL ARE TRYING TO HELP THE INCREASING NEED FOR PROM DRESSES.
“We know the need for our services continues to increase, yet the number of girls that register continues to decrease year-over-year which tells us that we are not reaching these young ladies!” says Mara Axelrod, one of the partners of FGGR. “The poverty level continues to grow here in Rochester but the cost of attending a prom continues to increase. We can help reduce the financial burden
“Greece is one community that has changed economically over the past 10 years, and our students here at Greece Olympia High School have not been immune from those drastic shifts ,” says Kara Passamonte, Reading Specialist and Student Advisor at the school. “In the past we have brought a few girls to the Fairy Godmother’s Annual Prom Dress Fair and they have had an excellent experience. This year we are bringing 30 students and providing the funding for the transportation to and from the convention center that day.”
“We only ask for a $5.00 donation for gowns and $1.00 for accessories and if a young lady is unable to pay that’s okay – they leave with their steamed gown, accessories and a goody bag!” continues Axelrod.
This year’s FGGR’s Prom Dress Fair is Saturday, March 30th at the Riverside Convention Center from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Young women can go to their High School Guidance Department to help them register on-line at www.fairygodmothersrochester.com.
Passamonte and her co-workers at Greece Olympia are passionate about her students and the whole Spartan community. “We have amazing, smart, intelligent young women that have never had the opportunity to be pampered and with the Fairy Godmother’s of Greater Rochester’s help we can make that happen!”
