News | 26th Feb 2014

6th Annual Princess Project Runway at La Jolla BreweryHead to the La Jolla Brewery on March 6 for an evening of fashion and flair. You’ll be amazed by the top FIDM designers as they showcase their talent in this fabulous fundraiser, inspired by Parisian Carnival. The event includes locally produced craft beers on tap, specialty cocktails, gourmet food, sweet treats bar live entertainment, silent auction, opportunity drawing and much more, all to benefit the Princess Project San Diego.

Tickets for this event are $25 in advance, and $30 at the door. La Jolla Brewery is located at 7536 Fay Avenue (between Kline Street & Pearl Street) in La Jolla.

Every year, The Princess Project seeks and receives thousands of beautiful new or nearly new dresses and accessories in excellent condition from individual donors and corporate partners. Hundreds of volunteers accept and organize these dresses and accessories to run an exciting giveaway event in the early spring for individual high school girls. Groups of 10 or more teens who want to attend can make an appointment for a private boutique.

Each year, thousands of teens from San Diego, San Francisco and Silicon Valley attend the dress giveaways to find that new prom dress and those perfect accessories to make their high school prom a reality. And it’s all free!

The Princess Project promotes self-confidence and individual beauty by providing free prom dresses and accessories to high school girls who cannot otherwise afford them. Their effort is made possible through invaluable volunteer, donor and community support.

The Princess Project began in February 2002 when one girl needed one dress for her prom. Founders Laney Whitcanack and Kristi Smith Knutson responded to this young woman’s request for help by involving friends and family in a dress drive. Within days, women from all over the San Francisco Bay Area offered their support through donations of their “time, talent and taffeta.”

Since that time, The Princess Project has served over 20,000 teens through the dedication of more than 2,000 volunteers and the generous start-up support of Coro Northern California. In 2005, The Princess Project became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
