Caitlins Closet Dress Giveaway March 7th 2009

The Dress Giveaway was at My Party Palace in Kernersville N.C. Put on by Katie Godfrey owner of Catlin's Closet.
Miss Teen N.C International Christina Roach and Miss N.C International Julie Tesh helped girls pick out the perfect prom night dress.

Saturday, March 7, 2009 marked NC's first ever Caitlin's Closet dress giveaway and it took place at My Party Palace in Kernersville. This particular dress giveaway was open to all Forsyth County high school girls who may not have otherwise had the opportunity to attend or been able to afford the expense of prom. We had refreshments for everyone, as well as exciting raffle prizes!
Prizes included: *Manicure/pedicure and mini prom make-over courtesy of Balance Day Spa in Kernersville.*Make-up kit from Caitlin's Closet's very own cosmetics line valued at $75.00*Photo package for prom or senior pictures valued at $250.00 courtesy of Zumwalt Photography of Winston Salem.
Over the past several months Katie Godfrey had been collecting donated gowns from all over the state...and at just yesterdays event they were able to giveaway over 45 gowns to underprivileged girls in our community.
Total in just the Forsyth County area we have given away close to 100 dresses! Caitlin's Closet is one of the only organizations where girls are able to come and receive dresses at absolutely no cost! My goal was to ensure that these girls not only left with a sense of self-worth but I wanted to help reduce the expenses associated with Prom so that they could go and have a worry free and amazing experience!
