As a recipient for assistance from Project Prom Dress, I am grateful for this program founded by Ashley Johnson. It began last year when I had two daughters Sulema Ybarra (senior) and Lexi Ybarra (junior), that would be attending prom. With only one income and a big family, I was not able to afford dresses. I was so thankful when I heard about Project Prom Dress and found out she would be able to help us. Both daughters found dresses they really liked and looked beautiful. The foundation even set us up with wonderful ladies that did their hair and make-up. They looked so beautiful! Now with it being 2016, my junior is a senior and was ready for her senior prom. Once again money was very tight. I found out that Ashley would once again be able to help us. Lexi found the perfect dress! It was everything she was looking for! And once again, Ashley got us in contact with three wonderful ladies that did everything her Lexi, from buying her her princess shoes to having her hair and make-up done. We couldn't help but cry because of all the generosity and assistance we were getting from Project Prom Dress. Without this foundation, my daughters would not have had the best proms ever. I couldn't guarantee that they would have been able to attend if not for Project Prom Dress. I hope this foundation continues on and helps many, many young ladies as it has helped mine.
Thank you project prom dress for providing my Princess Jaz with the perfect prom dress! I appreciate how everyone helped her until she finally found "the one." Providing an Amazing hair stylist Vantrice, shoes, jewelry, and makeup left me speechless. Project Prom Dress is an Awesome program for deserving young ladies whose parent's may not have had the resources needed to ensure an enjoyable prom. May God continue to bless project prom dress to be a blessing to others!
