I don't know about you, but I can remember how expensive my formal ball was. And I can't say my mum was too rapt with having to spend so much money for dresses, accessories and bags. But some girls out there do not even have the option to do their debutante ball due to family finances.
The brainchild of two Melbourne based mums, Amanda Stokes and Kylie Menz, The Tiara Project is an innovative charity designed to provide free formal dresses and accessories to young teenage girls who cannot afford the expenses involved with formals and debutante balls through a local loan centre.
Amanda and Kylie drew their inspiration for the project through an American TV show and couldn’t resist giving young Australian girls the same opportunity.
The mums run this initiative purely through donations.
They are holding a major fundraising event "A Girls Night Out" on Friday 10th September to help raise much-needed funds. It will be a fantastic night hosted by comedienne Aleisha McCormack.
Ticket price includes free treatments at several pamper stations supported by sponsors; The Body Shop, Endota Spa and BIBA Hairdressing salons. Guests will also receive a free gift bag with products from Wella, Cloud 9, Carmen’s Fine Foods, Razzamatazz, The Chocolate Box, and much more.
If you are in the Melbourne area this will be one fun-filled event not to be missed plus you will helping these young girls be a princess for a day.
