Beginning today, the East Valley Women’s League will begin collecting new and gently-used prom dresses and accessories to give for free to Arizona high school juniors and seniors who otherwise might not be attending prom.

The Cinderella Affair, at which these young women can try on and select gowns, will take place from 9am to 5pm Saturday, March 29 at the Pyle Adult Recreation Center, 655 E. Southern Ave. in Tempe.

“Going to the prom is a milestone in every high schooler’s life and we want to be sure that everyone who wants to go has the dress and accessories they need to make the night memorable,” says EVWL President Amy Grossklaus.

Since the Cinderella Affair first launched in 2002, more than 13,000 dresses have been given away. The event also has provided dresses to exchange students from the Tempe Sister Cities program, clients of Hacienda de Los Angeles and the Miss Champion Pageant.
