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. Project PROMise™ is Highline Schools Foundation’s outreach program in which new and gently used formal dresses are collected from our community and given to local students in need so they can attend their prom in style! For the 9th Annual Project PROMise™, the Highline Schools Foundation is collecting beautiful new and gently worn formal dresses and gowns, shoes and accessories from throughout our community. Highline Public School high school students in need will be invited to “go shopping” this spring, for the perfect dress and accessories for their prom. The dresses are offered to the students to keep, or they may return them to the Foundation to be used the following year.

If you have new or gently worn dresses, shoes, jewelry and accessories, email or call the Foundation at 206.248.5196.
