About Us.................................................

In December of 2006, co-founders Lauren and Cheryle Podgorski started Princess & the Prom after reading about a similar organization in San Francisco called the Princess Project.  Lauren, a high school junior at the time, and her mother, Cheryle, enlisted the help of five more mother/daughter teams from Granby High School. 

The organizers had a dream that every Connecticut girl would be able to feel like a princess on the night of their prom.  And so it all began...dresses were collected, a venue selected and the First Annual Gown Giveaway Event took place on March 31, 2007.  Each year, Princess & the Prom helps more and more girls find the dress of their dreams - FREE!

In 2009, Best Cleaners came on board by generously offered to sponsor the program by kindly collecting, cleaning and transporting all the dresses.  We are eternally grateful for their support.
