ARLINGTON, Texas – The Junior League of Arlington (JLA) is continuing a tradition 15 years in the making by hosting its annual Glass Slipper Boutique prom dress program on Friday, March 31, and Saturday, April 1, 2023. The event is one of the many projects and services JLA provides in the Arlington community as part of its mission of supporting women, children, and families in crisis. The Glass Slipper Boutique will be held at JLA’s Center for Community Service at 4002 West Pioneer Parkway in Arlington. 

During the event, students from fifteen school districts, emergency shelters, and child abuse prevention organizations will select free prom attire at the Center, which has been decorated with a boutique-theme so that students can enjoy the experience of shopping for new dresses, shoes, and accessories. JLA members and community volunteers serving as personal shoppers will assist the students as they make their selections from more than 1,000 on-trend choices. LaTasha Jackson-McDougle of Cheryl’s Voice will provide the students and their families with information and resources about safe dating, social media, and more. 

“The goal of our 15th annual Glass Slipper Boutique is to provide every young lady the opportunity to attend prom feeling beautiful, confident, and valued in the dress of her dreams,” says April Benjamin, Junior League of Arlington President.
