Rockcastle Florist Teams with Fairy Godmothers of Rochester for Prom Help

As a local Rochester flower shop, it’s very important for us to be involved in our community and help those around us. After all, the Rochester community has been so supportive of our business. That’s why we always want to give back. We have teamed up with Fairy Godmothers of Rochester to help out with Prom and support their efforts. First, we have collection sites at both our flower shop locations to collect donated prom dresses: 870 Long Pond Road, Rochester, NY 14612 100 S. Main Street, Canandaigua, NY 14424 Second, we are committed to making a cash donation at the end of the season from a percentage of prom flower sales. The donation will go to the Fairy Godmothers of Rochester to help them continue with their wonderful efforts. This charity was started in 2004 by Rene Spallina and Cynthia Jackson, two moms with a vision. Since then, their organization has dressed approximately 500 young ladies each prom season for a total of over 5,000 young ladies that encompasses 200 high schools and special programs in the Upstate New York region and beyond Every young lady leaves with an evening gown, accessories, and a goody bag that includes a $10.00 gift card to PayLess Shoes so they are ready for the big event. These are donated by those within the community like what we are encouraging our customers. It’s a tremendous opportunity to help young women in our area that don’t have the funds for buying their own prom dresses but have dreams of participating in this special school event where memories are made. Please help this wonderful organization out as well as these exceptional young ladies by bringing in your dresses and buying prom flowers from our flower shops. Thank you!
