A few of you have started emailing, and coming in asking if we are participating in the Corsage Project this year. We are! I’m just working out the details for this year, but will in essence stay the same as last year. Here is a link to last years info – the only thing that may change is the deadline.
We are also planning a special all day open beading event (on a weekend) for all of you to come in and work as a group on your donation submissions. More details to come soon!
About the Corsage Project
To provide formal gowns and accessories, free of charge, to Toronto area high school girls who are unable to purchase their own prom attire.
The Corsage Project was founded in 1999 as a nonprofit organization that works in partnership with the Children’s Aid Foundation. The founders believe that every high school girl should have the opportunity to celebrate the milestone of her high school graduation with pride and in style.
Students are identified through confidential referrals from school guidance counselors, Children’s Aid, youth, or social workers. Girls who are referred are formally invited to attend a ‘Boutique Ball’ in May where, assisted by a personal shopper, they select a gown of their choice, and shoes and accessories to match. This special day includes a make-up and hair consultation, a professional portrait, refreshments, and goodie bags.
Thanks to the dedication of our team, volunteers, community & corporate sponsors, we are now able to help over 200 girls.
