Project Cinderella was held on Saturday, March 11th, 2017 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA. Check out some photos from the event here!
Thank you to EY for sponsoring this program!
Thank you to all the wonderful donors, special guests, speakers, and workshop presenters that supported our active duty women and military spouses this year.
What is Project Cinderella? Most branches of service have at least one anniversary or recognition “gala” each year. For many active duty women and military spouses this is their first exposure to a formal event. These special events can be intimidating and overwhelming considering the etiquette and protocol associated with attending large-scale functions.
Project Cinderella is a special event that empowers military women and spouses to embrace their authentic beauty by providing them with a variety of interactive workshops (such as Fashionista on a Budget, Formal Etiquette and Protocol, and more), special speakers, and a visit to the Dress Boutique to select a “new-to-you” formal gown and accessories. Throughout the day, attendees will get the opportunity to network with other military ladies and special guests. Ladies leave the event armed not only with some new fashion pieces, but also with empowerment, increased confidence, new skills, and a broader network of friends within the military community!
Stay in the know and check back in the fall for more information on Project Cinderella 2018.
