PROM DRESS GIVEAWAY 2017

May 2017

The Garden of Eden Foundation hosted a prom dress giveaway event at P.S. 175 Henry H. Garnet School in Harlem, New York.

GOEF invited girls from foster homes, schools, community centers, and churches all over the city to provide them with the full prom shopping experience. All 600 dresses were donated to The Garden of Eden Foundation by Dr. Amy Kitching. The beauty kits were sponsored by Motives Cosmetics by Loren Ridinger, Miss Jessie's, Jane Carter Solution, and Deva Curl. 

 

The 8th grade girls from M.S 302 Luisa Dessus Cruz volunteered their time to help set up and also got priority in picking their dresses and receiving beauty kits.
