Hey It’s BigHouse!
Last week we had our annual Glitz, Glam and Gowns event and it was a HUGE success! Glitz, Glam and Gowns is our annual prom dress event for teenage girls in foster care throughout the state of Alabama. It is always such a fun way to connect with these girls and help them feel pampered for an evening.
This year the event was held at The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham. There were close to 60 round ladies signed up and multiple volunteers there to help! The girls could shop and try on prom dresses, pick out shoes and jewelry to match, and get their makeup and nails done. It was so much fun! We heard squeals, saw huge smiles as girls wore their dresses around for the rest of the night and spinning in them in the halls. It was so encouraging to see the joy on their faces as they found the dress they wanted!
Like many other events, Glitz, Glam and Gowns would not have been possible without some amazing people. To our staff, the volunteers, donors and prayer warriors.. THANK YOU!! Without you this event would not have been a success.
Glitz, Glam and Gowns is one of our favorite events each year, and we are so pleased with the way it went this year. We can't wait for next year!!
