The S.C. Bar Young Lawyers Division (YLD) 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.
Clean dresses in all sizes, as well as evening bags, jewelry, shoes and other accessories, are needed. Donations are being accepted until March 6 and can be dropped off at any of the following Greenwood-area locations:
-Bargain Bling, 805-IB Montague Ave., Greenwood 29469
-Pink Cricket Consignment, LLC, 1610 Calhoun Rd., Ste. C, Greenwood 29469
-Two Timers Consignment Shop, 204-C Montague Ave., Greenwood 29646
-Voila, 207 Waller St., Greenwood 29469
-Laurens Family YMCA, 410 Anderson Dr., Laurens 29360
-Uptown Girls, 103 Court Sq., Ste. 2, Abbeville 29620
A boutique will be held on Saturday, March 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Greenwood Mall located at 420 Hwy. 73 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 IDs.
For more information, contact Jenny Ouzts at (864) 941-6604 or visit www.scbar.org.
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.
