Appleton Mom Prom, a Fundraiser for Operation Cinderella, is a ladies night out that supports Operation Cinderella of the Fox Valley and a chance to go out dancing with friends. Moms and their friends wear old prom gowns and have fun while supporting a worthy cause.
Operation Cinderella is an event unlike any other an event that gives young, low income, or under-served girls the opportunity to have a Cinderella Story of their own. The prom dress event is centered around showing young and impressionable girls that they are precious, priceless, valued, and cared about. Each of the girls is given their own fairy godmother who acts as a mentor (and personal shopper) and guides them throughout their fairy tale day.
Operation Cinderella currently works with guidance counselors, teachers, and social workers from over 24 schools in and surrounding the Fox Valley area. We are currently expanding to have a second chapter in place in central Wisconsin for March 2018 based in Wausau. The yearly events are entirely volunteer-run and are supported by financial and in-kind donations from local, regional, and national companies and individuals. Operation Cinderella is a rapidly growing local non-profit. In Operation Cinderella’s first year, 2015, the prom dress event helped 36 girls. By 2017, over 250 girls attended the prom dress event. We’re excited to see how many girls are reached in 2018!
