WGIRLS hosted their annual Project G.L.A.M. event from April 20th-April 22nd in lower Manhattan. Project Granting Lasting Amazing Memories (G.L.A.M.) provides economically disadvantaged young women with prom dresses, and accompanying accessories, so they are able to enjoy the rite of passage of high school prom. To date, WGIRLS Inc. has outfitted over 14,336 young women in need for prom.
This year, WGIRLS dressed over 1,000 girls in need across the 5 boroughs of New York City. The young women were all vetted for genuine need through counselors, social workers, shelter coordinators, etc. Various sponsors supported Project G.L.A.M this year by donating gowns, jewelry, product samples and their time to this event. 2018 sponsors included Eloquii, Faviana, GIGI New York, Jenny Yoo, Kendra Scott, La Regale, Lovely Bride, MNM Couture, NYX Cosmetics, Project Glimmer, Prom Girl, Skinny Pop, Wits End NYC and many more. Over 150 volunteers supported this event.
