S.C. Bar Young Lawyers collect formal gowns for Cinderella Project
There are only a few Cinderella’s in Aiken. However, the Young Lawyers Decision of the South Carolina Bar believes that you and some friends may be able to help them so Cinderella can get to the ball at the High School Prom.
The S.C. Bar Young Lawyers Division is sponsoring its annual Cinderella Project, which provides gently worn formal, bridesmaid and prom dresses for young women who lack the financial resources to buy a gown for their high school prom.
This unique project is also being held in Anderson, Columbia, Greenville, Greenwood and Orangeburg.
Clean dresses in all sizes, as well as evening bags, jewelry, shoes and other accessories, are needed. Donations are being accepted until March 2 and can be dropped off at either of the following Maxwell Law Firm locations in 225 Chesterfield St., NW, Aiken, 516 West Ave., N. Augusta
A boutique will be held on March 17 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at the Maxwell Law Firm in Aiken to give the girls an opportunity to shop for dresses at no cost. Girls from all area schools are invited to attend and must bring their student ID.
For more information, visit www.scbar.org/cinderella or contact Christy Tyner at (803) 641-6700. The YLD includes all members of the S.C. Bar under age 36 and those with less than five years membership.
The South Carolina Bar, which has a membership of more than 14,000 lawyers, is dedicated to advancing justice, professionalism and understanding of the law.
