Bring In Prom Dresses for Fairy Godmothers of Rochester

Community service is a hallmark of our Rochester flower shop. Every year, we get involved with charities and organizations that are helping others in our local community. This year is no exception. Currently, we are collecting prom dresses for Fairy Godmothers of Rochester. Rene Spallina and Cynthia Jackson started the nonprofit organization after seeing a story on Oprah about another program that provided prom dresses for financially challenged high school girls. As moms, they knew they had to help local teens who were in that same situation.  Since starting the organization, they have helped more than 5,000 young ladies. They now assist over 200 high schools and special programs in the Upstate New York region and beyond. We agree that every young lady needs a special dress for prom to make it a magical event that they'll never forget. Fairy Godmothers of Rochester provides each girl with an evening gown, accessories, and a goody bag that includes a $10.00 gift card to PayLess Shoes. Nearly 50% of the dresses are practically brand new. There is a wide range of sizes and styles to fit everyone's tastes. You can help us help them. We are accepting donated dresses at our collection sites at our Rochester flower shops through June 30th. There is still time to bring in your donations. Even if you miss the deadline for this current donation, we have decided to still accept dress donations year round, so we encourage you to drop off dresses at any time.  And, for those who have already donated dresses, we truly appreciate your generosity in helping our local students enjoy their special dance. Together, we can make a real difference in our local community, strengthening our bonds and building each other up with positive action.

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!
