Hey I live in the Big Lake area and I am offering FREE updos for girls who are having a hard time affording prom details! Is there any way you can advertise that on this site or let people know? I believe Monticello and Big Lake are not on the same day so I can help out with both proms. I have been doing hair for over 10 years and although I am not a professional, I have done several wedding and prom hairstyles and I can provide sample pictures if needed. Please let me know if you can help get the word out!

I would love to volunteer throught the year.
I am a recently retired school psychologist, and very aware of how difficult prom season can be for girls. I also am the mother of a 31 year old daughter, and still have prom dresses hanging in the closet.

Dear Friends – I would like to collect prom dresses and old bridesmaid dresses from my neighbors to send to you. Do you have materials that I could use to promote this event?

I am interested in donating some custom made accessories to your organization for the 2016 season, however I haven’t seen any recent postings or activity in regards to your organization. I would like to ensure your charity is still active and whom I should contact in regards to my donation. Thank you.
