The 4th Annual Project Glam Girls boutique will be open again this year, thanks to the support of the Outer Banks community, said founder Quinn Capps.
Project Glam Girls (and guys) provides free prom dresses, shoes, accessories, tuxedos, suits, ties and more to girls (and guys) in our community.
“Project Glam Girls helped over 100 students last year to find the perfect attire for their prom and even some eighth-grade formals," Quinn Capps, founder, said in a press release. "I continue to be humbled an overwhelmed by the generosity of this community and how they support Project Glam Girls. I feel this is a very important time for our young people, and everyone should have the opportunity to experience it."
Much more than a donation bin, Project Glam Girls gives young women and men the opportunity to really experience the joy of "shopping" for the perfect dress, suit or tuxedo as they choose from a dizzying array of gorgeous donated gowns, suits, tuxedos, and accessories while assisted by the project's friendly, supportive volunteers.
“The Boutique is run by an amazing group of volunteers and enables young women and men to have 'personal shoppers' to help make their experience even nicer,” Capps said.
There are no special requirements for students to stop by the boutique and choose prom attire.
The 2019 Project Glam Girls boutique will be located at Manteo Faith Church, 1037 Burnside Road, Manteo. The event is free and open to all young ladies and gentlemen throughout the area.
The dates are: Thursday, March 14 (3-8 p.m.), Friday, March 15 (3-8 p.m), and Saturday, March 16 (9 a.m.-4 p.m.).
