Nevada County Cinderella Project has become part of Bright Futures for Youth

The Nevada County Cinderella Project, a nonprofit that has helped several hundred students get free dresses, gowns, tuxedos and other attire for proms and other special events in Nevada County, has joined Bright Futures for Youth.

The Cinderella Project ensures that cost is not an issue for students to attend their proms. About 100 students choose attire from the Cinderella Project every year.

Individuals and small-business owners, including numerous retailers in the community, have donated hundreds of dresses since the Cinderella Project started in 2010. The Cinderella Project will continue to collect donations.

The Friendship Club – a program for sixth- through 12th-grade girls – has enjoyed a partnership with the Cinderella Project since 2011. Many girls from The Friendship Club, a Bright Futures for Youth program, have volunteered as models for Cinderella Project fundraisers.

The Cinderella Project is located at 650 Gold Flat Road in Nevada City. But donations are made at Bright Futures for Youth’s campus at 200 Litton Drive in Grass Valley.

Some youth with Bright Futures for Youth will volunteer at the boutique, providing them a hands-on experience in business and retail. Volunteers from the community are always needed for the program.
