Supporting local philanthropy: Belle of the Ball

z-belle-of-the-ballAs part of our Caring Company initiative, we recognize local clients and Renaissance Alliance members who give back to the New England community. There’s no better embodiment of generosity of spirit than Anton’s Cleaners, currently embarked on their 11th Annual Belle of the Ball, which is collecting prom gowns now through April 5, 2015.

Belle of the Ball cleans and distributes prom dresses and provides related accessories at no charge to high school junior and senior girls who could not otherwise afford to attend their school’s prom. Unlike other prom gown collection drives, this program culminates with a day-long boutique where deserving girls are invited for a day of personal shopping and pampering. The program has grown to hosting more than 400 young ladies for an indulgent day of prom “shopping,” beauty tips, and prizes.

Here are places that you can donate a dress, along with other ways you can support Belle of the Ball.
