Fairy Godmothers, Inc. a Hatboro, PA based non-profit organization collects gently used and new prom gowns, shoes and accessories to be distributed through its Prom Fair program.
Fairy Godmothers, Inc. held its Prom Fair's starting the weekend of March 5th until the weekend of March 19th at the Arsenal Business Complex in Philadelphia. This location was the best for us as the girls have easy access to it. Our heart-felt thanks goes to Mr. Mark Hankin of Hankin Management for their donation of this building for this length of time.
We are pleased to announce the results of this event. Because of the support of so many companies and individuals we were able to make many young ladies feel like princesses and make their dreams of attending their prom come true. The organization distributed 922 Gowns, 500 pairs of shoes and countless pieces of jewelry, make-up, purses and shawls.
We are excited with the results of this year's event. Once again, we are very appreciative of all the help and support we have received throughout the year from both our corporate and individual sponsors. A special thank you goes to all of our many (125) volunteers. We could not have met this goal with out their help.
