Primed for prom at Sally Ann

The Salvation Army is once again collecting dresses, shoes and jewelry to help teenage girls feel like royalty.
On April 11 and 12, the Salvation Army Citadel, 1320 Gordon St., will open its door for the second annual Princess Project, an initiative dedicated to ensuring that every young woman in the area has a dress for prom or graduation.
The project’s slogan is “because every young woman deserves to feel like a princess!”
“In our first year last year, we sold 100 dresses along with accessories to the young women who came to the event,” said organizer Laurie Valeriote in an email to the Tribune.
This year, with the project advertising through community centres and neighbourhood associations, as well as schools, Valeriote expects to double the number of dresses sold.
The dresses will be priced at $15, shoes at $2 and purses and jewelry at $3, with all proceeds going to the local Salvation Army.
The sale will take place April 11 from 4 to 8 p.m., and April 12 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Donations for the project can be dropped off at the Salvation Army between 9 a.m. and noon and between 1 and 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.
