The Princess Project has been supporting under-privileged high school girls in the San Diego county since 2007. The non-profit organization helps dress and accessorize girls that may not otherwise have had the opportunity to go to senior prom. Started in 2002 in San Francisco, the company has since expanded into San Diego & Silicon Valley. Their mission of helping financially challenged high school students has benefitted thousands of girls in California. This upcoming spring, the Princess Project will once again return to La Jolla!
Princess Project San Diego will be hosting the 7th annual Princess Project RUNWAY Event on Thursday, March 6th at the newly opened La Jolla Brewing Company! The parisian carnival themed event will feature local fashion designers as they help fundraise money for the chairty. Join other community members for a night filled with locally crafted beers on tap, specialty cocktails, gourmet food, live entertainment, sweet treats, a silent auction, and much more. The event is open to the public and will be held from 7:00PM-10:00PM. Tickets are available online for $25, and will be $30 at the door. Visit princessprojectsd.org fore more information.
If you’re not able to attend the event, there are still many more ways that you can support the Princess Project. You can make a tax-deductible cash donation on their website, or you can donate newly worn dresses and accessories. The Princess Project collects dresses all year long at their conveniently accessible dress drives. Featured drop off locations this year include Horton Plaza, El Cajon Library, Vista Library and the South Chula Vista Library. Drop off dates will be between March 12th and March 22nd.
