2020 Project Glam Girls gearing up for sixth annual event

Published 1:34 pm Saturday, February 29, 2020

The 6th Annual Project Glam Girls 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) in the community. 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 prom attire as they choose from an array of donated gowns, suits, tuxedos and accessories while assisted by the project’s friendly, supportive volunteers.

The 2020 Project Glam Girls boutique will be located at Manteo Faith Church, 1037 Burnside Rd in Manteo on Thursday, March 5 from 3-8 p.m.; Friday, March 6 from 3-8 p.m. and Saturday, March 7 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. This event is open to all young ladies and gentlemen across the area and is free of charge.

“Project Glam Girls helped over 120 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.”

There are no special requirements for students to come and shop. For additional information, contact Capps at projectglamgirls@gmail.com.
