CHICO, Calif. - The Student California Teachers Association, Cinderella's Closet was able to give away hundreds of prom dresses at the Chico Mall Sunday.
The dresses were donated from many people and the Paradise Host Lions Club made a generous donation, bringing 10 boxes of dresses. They also had accessories, shoes from Bebes and some button-ups for the guys.
"It's comforting to know that we get to service somebody, we get to give them a smile and that means everything," said Karen Crook, the president of Paradise Host Lions Club.
Sephora and Claire's were also there to teach attendees some makeup skills and Shubert's Ice Cream & Candy was there to provide some treats as they shopped.
"I think of it as just a way to make prom less expensive [because] it was definitely something I was worried about just like the cost of everything," said high schooler, Isabella Intersimone.
She goes on to say "Just to have an opportunity to be able to get a free dress or free shoes or something it just makes it alot less stressful."
Cinderella's Closet typically gives away a hundred dresses every year and has donated at least three thousand dresses in the past 15 years.
