NEW HAVEN, Connecticut (WTNH) – The dance party is coming. An organization in New Haven is working hard to help girls find the perfect dress for free.
“We built this event because we noticed that young people in cities and Connecticut cannot attend the ball due to the price of a ball gown,” explains Kullilah Abdulrahim and Hope Hope CT.
A night that should be full of beautiful things may also cost a penny. This is where Hope Hope CT comes in.
“Free prom Cheap Long Gown Dress, free shoes and student accessories,” Abdulrahim added.
The Cheap Long Gown Dress were donated by strangers, community groups and a host of sponsors who helped hundreds of girls to become prom highlights.
“I remember that last year I went to the store when girls tried on clothes,” said sponsor Clementina Yazdani. “I was very touched to see them try on this dress. They were very excited and didn’t have to worry about the extra price of this dress.”
Hope Project CT will be at the Yale Store in downtown New Haven from April 7th to 28th.
“They can come,” Adbulrahim explained. “They only need their school certificate or school report card.”
