BLACK BUSINESS FEATURE: PRINCESS CHAMBERS INC.
Who remembers senior year of high school? So full of promise, anticipation, dreams. But if any of you can really think back to senior year, you remember money. Costs from things like senior dues, rings, senior trip and possibly most expensive, prom. Not everyone had parents with money to cover the costs of such an expensive but memorable time in life. Enter, Princess Chambers Inc.
Princess Chambers Inc. is an organization started by Jennifer Daniel in 2009 that provides dresses, shoes & accessories at no cost to young women who don't have the means to purchase these items themselves. Amazing right? For so many young women, senior prom is the first time they get dressed up and feel like a woman. There's no reason any young lady should feel less than.
The 2015 dress donation event is taking place on Saturday 5/9/15 at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge and is an opportunity for graduating seniors selected by their guidance counselors based on financial need, academic success and self-esteem to find their dream prom dress.
"Our 'princesses' are accompanied by a personal shopper and encouraged to make wise decisions with regards to substance abuse and sex on their prom night. Additionally, they receive mini-makeovers by professional makeup artist and have the opportunity to win a raffle to get their hair and/or makeup done by a professional on their individual prom night. We also provide goodie bags to all attendees with essential items for their prom night including makeup, hair spray and other items from sponsors."
