On Saturday, March 7th hundreds of young ladies and their family will visit the campus of First Baptist Church to be fit for dresses, shoes and accessories as well as hear talks about etiquette, safety, and more.  The event starts at 9 a.m. and lasts until about 1 p.m.

“The Prom Project is right in line with our vision to build bridges and cultivate community in our city,” Rev. Stacy Nowell, senior pastor of FBC-H said.  “We are blessed with a large campus and an already existent prom ministry through the Lydia’s Loft Prom Closet. It’s a perfect collaboration.”

For 17 years the Prom Project was coordinated by Girl Talk in Charlotte.  This year they passed the torch.

“It was hard to let go of such a meaningful event but we knew it was in safe hands at the Huntersville Prom Closet,” according to Janine Davis, founder of Girl Talk Foundation. “We are here to support them and do all we can to help make it a success in the future.”

Registration is now open on the Prom Closet web site.  Donations of gently used dresses, shoes, and accessories are being accepted at:

Lydia’s loft Huntersville

Hendrick Lexus
6025 E Independence Blvd Charlotte

St. Marks Catholic Church
