The Highline Schools Foundation’s 3rd Annual Project PROMise™ will be held this weekend at the Southcenter Doubletree in Tukwila.
At this event, the Highline Schools Foundation collects beautiful new and gently worn formal dresses and gowns, shoes, and accessories from throughout our community and invites high school students in need to “go shopping” for the perfect dress for their prom. The dresses are offered to the girls to keep, or they may return them to the Foundation to be used the following year.
For many high school girls, going to the prom is an event anticipated for years—but not going to the prom because the family can’t afford a formal dress can be devastating. This year, thanks to the Highline Schools Foundation for Excellence, a number of high school students will be going to the prom in beautiful dresses donated by local organizations and members of the community. They will also have opportunity to select shoes, bags and other accessories contributed by the local community.
WHAT: Highline Schools Foundation’s 3rd annual Project PROMise.
WHEN: Friday, April 22nd and Saturday, April 23rd.
WHERE: Southcenter Doubletree Guest Suites Hotel (16500 Southcenter Parkway, Tukwila)
INFO: A fashion show, complete with runway, hair and make-up donated by BTB Advertiser Serenza Salon & Spa. Girls from Highline High School, Mount Rainier High School, Evergreen High School, Tyee High School, Thomas Jefferson High School, and Decatur High School will walk the runway modeling a variety of dress styles.
Over 120 girls from the Highline School District will “shop” for the perfect dress for their prom at no cost to them! Each student will be given a personal shopper—alterations are provided by local seamstresses.
The mission of the Highline Schools Foundation for Excellence is to provide resources to help students in our district succeed. We support academic achievement, classroom grants, college and career readiness, athletics, and the arts.
