It was a day filled with smiles from both volunteers and recipients at Highline Schools Foundation’s annual Project PROMise held on Friday, April 14 and Saturday, April 15, 2023.

Organizers said that, in total, about 170 students from across Highline Public Schools were served over the two-day event.

For many high school students, 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 a Highline Schools Foundation program that helps provide formal dresses, shoes, and accessories to students in need at Highline Public Schools.

Students from any high school in Highline in need of formal wear for prom were able to sign up for a personal shopping appointment to shop for new and gently used dresses, suits, shoes and accessories at no cost, with the help of a personal shopper.

The event was open to students enrolled in Highline Public Schools.

“What a great opportunity for families in our community to give the kids an opportunity to enjoy Prom this year,” organizers said.

“Thank you Sharon da Dalto & PSSC Fashion & Marketing for all your help! You all should be so proud! This event was a HUGE success!”
