Minneapolis (03-07-07): -- The New Lawyers Section (NLS) of the Hennepin County Bar Association (HCBA) sponsors Wish Upon a Prom, to make local high school students’ dreams come true. Local businesses and individuals are invited to create magic for a Patrick Henry High School student at her prom by partnering with Wish Upon a Prom. The project seeks new or gently used formal dresses, accessories, and services.
A boutique will be set up at the school to display the dresses, and NLS members will assist the girls in choosing the perfect fit and color for their personal styles. Gift certificates for restaurants, accessories, and other donated items will be given out following a raffle for the prizes. Also, local hairdressers are asked to volunteer their time to create beautiful fashions for each girl’s hair.
Businesses can donate make-up, jewelry, and other accessories, and individuals are welcome to give new or used dresses to help fulfill each under-privileged teen’s dream.
Please drop off donations of unused make-up, gently used accessories, and dresses at the HCBA’s office on the third floor of the City Center in downtown Minneapolis between April 2nd and 6th. Questions regarding the Wish Upon a Prom project can be directed to Krista Dean at (612) 335-1635.
