Getting a Dress from OGS
The annual Princess Event is held in the spring. The 2018 event has passed.
OGS provides a full prom outfit (dress, shoes, purse, and jewelry) to students in financial or family situations that makes it otherwise unfeasible to attend prom. OGS will also provide minor alterations.
During the event, each Princess is guided through the event with a Fairy Godmother as their personal shopper.
All students must have a referral form to be admitted to the event. Referral forms are emailed to teachers/administrators/social workers/etc in early February. If you are a counselor, clergy member, social worker, teacher etc that would like to refer a student, but need a form, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide dresses to girls who are pregnant as we cannot accommodate alterations that would be necessary.
Attending the Princess Event
Arrive at your appointment time – we do our best to keep things on schedule, but appreciate your patience if we’re running behind.
Please be prepared to try on dresses without any clothing underneath. It is very important that we fit the diress correctly so that it fits well for prom. You will also be asked to remove any makeup you are wearing so that it does not rub off on the dresses.
Each princess is allowed one female guest in the event space. This guest will sit in our guest gallery while you shop with your Fairy Godmother. We are unable to allow any infants or children in the event space.
Please plan to be at the event about 90 minutes.
