On Saturday, February 27, 2016 at Brookland Baptist Church, local teens will comb through racks of gently used donated dresses to find the perfect one for prom at the 2014 Cinderella Project. The Cinderella Project, organized by the S.C. Bar Young Lawyers Division, began in 2001. People across the state donate items for the boutique in their city, and girls are given the chance to pick out a dress and accessories for free just before prom each year. The Columbia boutique is co-sponsored by the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Upsilon Omega Omega Chapter. Click here for more information and drop-off locations.
