Belle of the Ball

Prom, a truly memorable experience filled with joy, laughter, friends, and incredible new beginnings.  But for some, prom is something that is nothing more than a dream.  Orangewood helps make these dreams become a reality during their annual Belle of the Ball event.  Young ladies ages 16-19 are invited to attend this special event in which they get to experience a prom of their very own.  With the generous support of local volunteers and donations, each young lady receives a dress, accessories, and is even done-up with make-up and hair.  When Holly Wilson heard about the event, she recruited her nieces to help; and together they delivered 123 dresses! What a truly admirable act of kindness! This year, the girls were able to choose from more than 1,000 dresses; and each was able to truly experience being “The Bell of the Ball.”
