Milwaukee -Lisette Franco Gadzuric made a special appearance in Wednesday's TMJ 4 Morning Blend to promote the give away of Prom dresses to young women. Franco heads the Gadzuric Foundation Cinderella Project.
A Prom Dress Drive is underway, where dresses can be donated to the Gadzuric Foundation...residents can drop off prom dresses at area community centers from now to April 3rd, Franco said on the Morning Blend.
Applying to Cinderalla Project, Franco said, "in order to receive a free prom dress, the girls must complete an application package which consists of a short essay on why they are deserving of the dress and a letter of support from an adult mentor" (teacher, pastor, employer or community center employee). Participants will then attend a two-hour workshop that will cover various topics including nutrition and fitness, self-esteem, healthy relationships and prom choices.
Once those two steps are complete, the girls can then pick their prom dress on April 3rd at the Bradley Center. Food, beverage, music and personal shoppers will be on hand to aid in the selection of dresses.
Prom is an important time for any high school student… and it can also be an expensive occasion. To alleviate some of the cost, The Gadzuric Foundation through Cinderella Project MKE will collect and distribute donated prom dresses to young women throughout the Milwaukee area.
The Gadzuric Foundation was created by Bucks center Dan Gadzuric and his wife, Lisette Franco, who is an avid volunteer in the Milwaukee community. The foundation’s mission is to eliminate negative barriers affecting youth and their families, replacing these obstacles by fostering self-esteem with positive experiences that build autonomy, enhancing the community, according to the Gadzuric Foundation web site.
