Attending the prom is a dream for many high school students, but the expense can often turn it into a nightmare and some girls can't even go at all. That's where the Glass Slipper Project comes in.

The project provides free dresses, shoes, purses, makeup and even free "personal shopping" assistance to girls in need.

Liz Kores, a board member of the Glass Slipper Project, joins ABC 7 Eyewitness News to discuss the project and some upcoming events.

HOW IT WORKS
Dresses, jewelry and accessories are distributed at "boutiques" each prom season where each student receives individual assistance from a "personal shopper." The bouquets are open to high school juniors and seniors in Chicagoland.

Students do not have to register, but must provide a valid student ID or other proof of enrollment.

Students may be accompanied by one parent, guardian or chaperone.
