'Belle of the Ball' offers free Prom dresses March 5-6

For the past four years, the Belle of the Ball Project has been providing free dresses and accessories to Racine high school girls for prom.

On March 5 and 6, the project will hold its free Boutique at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare – All Saints, Spring Street Campus in the Racine Room (lower level of St. Mary’s hospital near the cafeteria.)

“New this year is the expanded VIP, or reservation, times which will run the full length of the Boutique hours,” said Krystyna Sarrazin, project founder. “This means we are asking all girls to make a reservation for a VIP spot. This will enable us to ensure the best experience for each girl and not rush through the process."

The Belle of the Ball experience includes a personal shopper, makeup and hair consultations, and even seamstresses to make minor alternations for a perfect fit. Girls are asked to bring their school ids.

Donations of current and clean prom-style dresses and accessories (purses, jewelry, shoes, etc) will also be accepted during Boutique times.

Boutique dates and times:

Friday, March 5 from 7 p.m. – 9p.m.
Saturday, March 6 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Email racineprom@hotmail.com to make an appointment at the Boutique or with any questions.

  1. What a great deed for the young ladies who otherwise could not afford to buy a prom dress. Wondering if you offer grant applications.
    THank you for your big heart.
