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! ♥
