About Once Upon a Prom


Princess dresses, crisp suits, sparkling accessories, glamorous high heels, fancy hairdos, and makeup are the staple items for every student’s prom night; one of the most exciting nights for high school seniors.

Due to the high costs of today’s hot designs, prom dresses or suits alone can cost anywhere between $300 and $1,000. These high prices coupled with beauty services and accessories can make going to prom an unattainable dream for many young men and women.


Once Upon A Prom is for qualified high school students who cannot afford the costs related to prom. It’s a chance to “shop” for FREE at our Boutique Day, with a Fairy Prom Mother or Fairy Prom Fathers (personal shoppers) who will help each prince/princess find the dress or suit of their dreams, receive shoes, a handbag, makeup, prom accessories, and other prom-related services. Each prince/princess can even have their photograph taken in their new prom attire.


Each student will be treated with respect, love, and kindness by all of our volunteers. We do our best to promote self-esteem and confidence in these young men and women while surrounding them with positive role models and hope to make an unforgettable experience for every prince/princess who will waltz through our doors.
