Thank you!

Another wonderful year is behind us, we'd like to to thank the volunteers, sponsors and drop off locations that made this wonderful event so successful! The love you've shown is inspiring!

A personal note from Dana Davis:

We had 181 volunteers this year, that's phenomenal! I prayed for refreshments; and they were there.  It reminded me of Jesus' miracle with the fish and the loaves. There was SO much food donated.  By donating our surplus, we were able to be a blessing to homeless ministries throughout the county. Melinda prayed for girls to find gowns on the first try; and they did! I heard many exclamations of, "The girls are choosing the first gown they tried on!" I prayed for God to prepare the girls and volunteers; and He did. There was so much love in the building that day!

An event like this could never be possible without the incredible support and a true willingness to serve.  Regardless of what your role was, please know that I treasure what you did for the girls on Saturday. Know too, that you made a lasting impression on the girls that came to our door. You helped to make memories - positive, joyful memories.  I hope you received blessings beyond measure from being a part of our day.

Our deep appreciation goes to Melinda, who has done a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes.  Melinda, I truly could not organize Cinderella's Closet without you. You take care of so many small details - and big ones! - that no one ever realizes - sometimes not even myself.  Lindsey, thank you for jumping in alongside me.  You were a big help with phone calls and contacts, and putting out fires at the event. Kam, I appreciate you more than you know. I love how you never hesitate to take care of any need that arises. Maggie, Lynda, Patti, and Kathy, thank you for the beautiful job you always do on decorations. It's because of you that our girls feel special and warm when they first walk into our doors. Your lovely touch is something I personally look forward to every year. And I know I'm not alone with that. Colette and your registration team - I don't know what else to say, besides, "You all ROCK!" Lauren, you were awesome working on photos this year! I can't wait to see the slide show you put together! Lea, you were incredible with our refreshments! Kathy, your alterations team was phenomenal! Every time I passed your door, you were all working diligently to ensure our girls had dresses that were perfect.  Rich, Corey, and John, you were amazing helping us transport gowns. 

You KNOW I couldn't have done it without you! Thank you!

We'd also like to thank the beautiful Dana Davis that started this event 6 years ago and grew it to the amazing event it has become today. Hundreds of girls have beautiful memories of their prom to carry with them for the rest of their lives thanks to all of her tireless efforts.

See you next year! ♥
