Junior League holds Project Prom

The Junior League of Bell County held its Project Prom on Feb. 9 at the league’s resale store, Second Hand Rose.

Counselors in Bell County high schools recommend senior level, hardworking, determined young ladies whose personal and financial circumstances may prevent them from participating in prom.

Twenty-one teens got to pick out dresses, shoes, jewelry, purses and other accessories. Sponsors also donated gift certificates for cosmetology services and restaurant services to complete the evening. Project Prom was sponsored by Titan Total Training, T3. Other generous donations were received from Adelea’s on Main, Cinderella Bridal Boutique, Frosted Hope and Tracey Casey-Arnold with the WIT consulting company.
