Fashion For a Cause with Glamour Gowns

By  | 

Spring is already here, readers. Where does the time go? No matter, because the changing seasons means it’s time for the annual Glamour Gowns 2014 convention in Los Angeles. Let me tell you about how awesome Glamour Girls and their affiliates are.

Glamour Gowns provides a dress, shoes, and other related items to high school aged young women in the Los Angeles foster care system to attend prom. It is part of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) For Children, and is sponsored by companies such as Jenette Bras, Chinese Laundry, and Studio DNA. The event allows young women to experience prom in style, something many of them may not have the means to do while living in the Los Angeles foster care system.

If you know a girl who qualifies, let them know ASAP! The deadline to register is March 21 2014 and the information can be found here.

If you want to know how to get involved, Glamour Gowns is looking for volunteers! The event takes place March 29, but they need volunteers on March 28 and March 30 as well!

Another way to get involved is through Hourglass Underground, Jenette Bra’s 501(c)3 nonprofit arm. About 30 or so fitters are needed to help these girls get the best fitting bras they need. There is a mandatory brunch training session Sunday March 23 2014. You can get in contact with Hourglass Underground to volunteer via email.

If you can’t volunteer, donations are also welcome at both CASA and Hourglass Underground.

Glamour Gowns will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Saturday March 28, 2014 from 10AM to 5PM. Participants must register in advance with their name and Case Social Worker’s name by contacting Joanne  Solov. RSVP by March 21. Full details can be found on the event flyer here.

All information for volunteers can also be located at the volunteer flyer here. Spread the word, readers!
