EVENT DATE: May 12, 2012
Primary mission is to provide educational assistance for economically disadvantaged youth in the area of hard science and business.
The foundation assists disadvantaged youth and will specifically target rising high school juniors and seniors and support them through their college careers.
Prom can be one of the most memorable days in a teenager's life, but also one of the hardest to prepare for. With unemployment rising along with prices, plus the added on expenses of junior and senior year cost such as graduation, standardized test cost, and college application fees, parents may not be able to afford that special prom night wardrobe.
This is why Prom Pop-Up Shop was created to make a lasting impact on generations of young woman/ young men who are able to attend a memorable event with confidence and positive self-image.
In order to make these teens dreams come true we need dresses, shoes, make-up, purses, suits, jewelry , gift certificates and anything else required for prom.
We are asking that you remember that all teens come in different shapes and sizes so please have a variety of sizes......High demand for plus sizes.
At this event we are hoping to provide at least 1000 students with prom gear.
Please be sure to include guy prom gear such as suits, ties, shoes, shirts etc.
We are also expecepting donations for Melvin Van Peebles Foundation by raffling off items such as designer prom gear, a photo shoot for prom night, glam session for prom night, limo ride and more.
To execute the raffle we will need sponsored items or services.
We will also need food and drinks for the day of the event.
