Project Glam Girls again brings free prom attire for girls and guys

The 4th Annual Project Glam Girls has announced that the boutique will be open again this year, thanks to the support of our community. Project Glam Girls (and guys) provides free prom dresses, shoes, accessories, tuxedos, suits, ties and more to girls and guys. Much more than a donation bin, Project Glam Girls gives young women and men the opportunity to really experience the joy of “shopping” for the perfect dress, suit or tuxedo as they choose from a dizzying array of gorgeous donated gowns, suits, tuxedos and accessories while assisted by the project’s friendly, supportive volunteers.

The 2019 Project Glam Girls boutique will be located at Manteo Faith Church, 1037 Burnside Road in Manteo The dates are Thursday, March 14 and Friday, March 15 from 3-8 p.m. and Saturday, March 16 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.). This event is open to all young ladies and gentlemen across the area and is of charge. There are no special requirements for students to come and shop.

Project Glam Girls is currently seeking donations for age appropriate prom dresses, dress shoes, jewelry, hand bags, suits, tuxedos, ties, clothes racks and full-length mirrors to help fill the racks with new inventory for 2019. Project Glam Girls is fully supported on private donations. Drop off locations are throughout the Outer Banks and include:
• Barco Library, 4261 Caratoke Hwy, Barco, NC 27917

  • Duck’s Cottage, 1240 Duck Rd, Duck, NC 27949
  • Atlantic Realty-Kitty Hawk, 4729 N Croatan Hwy, Kitty Hawk, NC 27949
  • Outer Banks Association of Realtors, 201 W 8th St, Nags Head, NC 27959
  • Atlantic Realty-Nags Head, 103 E Mall St, Nags Head, NC 27959

Organizers are also seeking financial donations to pay for the climate-controlled storage unit for another year and they say without the support of the community, the project will have to end. Anyone interested in making a financial donation should contact founder Quinn Capps at projectglamgirls@gmail.com or call 252-216-9362.

“Project Glam Girls helped over 100 students last year to find the perfect attire for their prom and even some eighth grade formals. I continue to be humbled an overwhelmed by the generosity of this community and how they support Project Glam Girls. I feel this is a very important time for our young people and everyone should have the opportunity to experience it,” said Capps. “The boutique is run by an amazing group of volunteers and enables young women and men to have ‘personal shoppers’ to help make their experience even nicer.”
