Making magic for others...

Sophia '22 and Skylar Hooley '20, along with their cousin who attends Pinecrest created a service initiative collecting used formal dresses from their respective schools to donate to allow girls that otherwise wouldn't be able to go to homecoming, the chance to do so. The girls partnered with Jandra Alexander of the YMCA to plan the event and identify students in need. The girls who received the dresses attended 3 different schools: Stranahan, Fort Lauderdale High School, and Sunfire High.

75 dresses were collected, sorted, steamed and readied for the ladies to "shop" for the perfect fit. In addition to receiving their gown the recipients were gifted with a Target gift card to shop for accessories and complete their look.
