We have now confirmed the dates of the 2015 Princess Event:
Saturday, March 14th, and Sunday, March 15th
The event will again be held at Southdale Center in Edina, but this year in the space previously occupied by Ragstock (2nd floor).
GIRLS: if you cannot afford a prom dress, please speak with a favorite teacher, counselor, school social worker, or clergy member about obtaining an Operation Glass Slipper referral form. You will need one in order to get a dress at the Princess Event. Information packets with referral forms will be sent to high school offices in mid-February. We will update this website to let you know when the packets have been sent. We DO NOT send referral forms to students.
COUNSELORS/TEACHERS: information packets with referral forms are being updated for this year’s event and will be mailed to high school offices in mid-February. We will update this website to let you know when the packets have been sent. We always request that school offices route the packet to teachers, counselors, and other school staff, so check with your school office if you have not received a packet after we have mailed it. Please note that referral forms WILL NOT be available for download on our website.
VOLUNTEERS: There are many ways you can help. We need several hundred Fairy Godmothers to help the girls choose their dresses and accessories. But we also need many other kinds of help, such as dressing room attendants and dress runners to keep the dresses organized and flowing during the event. We need help moving from our warehouse to Southdale, setting up and tearing down, and moving back.
Again this year we will use a separate website for online signup for volunteer shifts, and in mid-February we will email you a link with instructions for signing up.
Stay tuned for more updates, and we look forward to seeing you in March!
