This is an event open to all high school aged girls where they will get to pick out a FREE prom dress! This year the event will be held Saturday April 6th from 1-4 PM at the
Meredith Bay Colony Club in Meredith, located at 21 Upper Hill Road. Theground level of Meredith Bay Colony Club will be turned into a ONE DAY ONLY boutique for girls to pick out the dress of their dreams, free of charge! Light refreshments will be served and the day will kick off with an inspirational talk by co-founder of F.H.L; Jessica Dutille and Laura Brusseau.
The day of the event girls will have the chance to get hair and makeup tips for their big night, pick out a prom dress and accessories with one of the personal shopper volunteers on hand!
This is our 7th year for the event, each year bringing girls from all over New Hampshire. In the past seven years the Foundation has given out over 500dresses and given out over $18,000 in grants for enrichment and survival funds.
The dresses are all donated by local community members and past prom goers. Special thanks go out to our dress drop off locations: Pemi Youth Center in Plymouth, Sunday’s Salon and Spa in Laconia, Chain Line Cycles in Laconia, The Barn Doggie Daycare in New Durham, the Nashua YMCA, Franklin Parks and Rec in Franklin, Dressbarn at the Tanger Outlets in Tilton and WREN in Bethlehem.
These companies are generous enough to not only join the cause, but set aside space to collect dresses the month leading up to the event! F.H.L’s mission is to bring relief to children and youth suffering from poverty, hunger or homelessness and to bring them hope, through faith and love, so that they may accomplish all of their dreams. The Foundation was established in 2006 by Laura Brusseau, a teacher of Laconia and Jessica Dutille of Plymouth, the Executive Director of the Pemi Youth Center. The event was the brainchild of Brusseau, Dutille and Board member WhitneyMackay. The three were discussing the high cost of attending prom and thatmost of these gowns are only worn once.
If you plan on coming to the event with a group larger than 4 please email us to RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you on April 6th!
