Princess for a Night

Princess for a Night (PFAN) is in its eleventh year and is back at Edison where it all began. Last year hundreds of items were donated to the project and over 350 students from local high schools were outfitted with the dress of their dreams. Every year the project has expanded to serve more and more lucky young women! During the month of April, dresses and other prom essentials will be collected. In May, shopping events are held at four local high schools and young ladies are encouraged to attend to select dresses, shoes, jewelry, and handbags free of charge. Donations will be collected Tuesday, April 1st through Wednesday, April 30th, 2014.
