It all started when…
A Colorado Miss Amazing committee member said, “I’m sure it is difficult for some of these girls to find a dress for the pageant or even maybe be able to afford one. It could keep them from participating.”
We heard that and didn’t want anything to keep someone from participating, if they had the desire. So we brainstormed and came up with the Princess Closet. We started asking on social media and through word of mouth, that we were accepting evening gown and prom dress donations.
Well, the campaign exploded! We ended up with over 450 dresses from bridal stores, boutiques, and individuals from all over the world! The news really traveled! Putting the cart before the horse, now we had to acquire commercial garment racks and mannequins. We ended up having a very successful first Princess Closet event that we offered to all girls who registered early enough. We also used the dresses for the newly chosen state representatives to choose more for their trip to the National Miss Amazing Pageant in Chicago.
This event has turned into a great fundraiser for us, as well as a wonderful opportunity for the girls and women who participate to choose the dress of their dreams.
