Belle of the Ball Program at Jordan's Furniture
During prom season, Jordan's Furniture teams up with Anton's Cleaners to deliver gently used, like-new prom gowns and cocktail dresses to girls in need looking to attend their high school prom.
Once dresses have been collected, an "invitation only" boutique is planned, enabling high school girls to try on and select a free gown. A typical boutique usually includes over 2,000 dresses, all professionally dry-cleaned by Anton's Cleaners.
Over 300 volunteers assist the girls, serving as their personal shoppers. Invitations are arranged through a Referral Partners Program of 125 public and private agencies. More than 1,495 girls have been outfitted since the Belle of the Ball program began in 2005.
Donations of gently used, like-new dresses are collected at each of Jordan's Furniture store locations. In addition, Jordan's Furniture advertises the program through public service announcements voiced by Eliot.
Drop off dresses at any Jordan's Furniture location by April 1st.
