Preparing for prom: Fairy Godmother Boutique set for March 16 

Thanks to generous donors and the Fairy Godmother Boutique, area high school students can pick out new and gently used dresses. Many don’t look forward to prom because they can’t afford to purchase a dress and accessories.  

“The Fairy Godmother Boutique was created to help these students get the prom experience we all dream of — the perfect dress, the hair, the shoes,” Patient Education & Support Manager Julie Laverack says. 

The pop-up boutique is set for Saturday, March 16, at CHC/SEK in Pittsburg, at 3011 N. Michigan. To shop for a free dress, prom goers must book an appointment by calling 620-231-9873 and ask for a Family Resource Specialist. Participants can also sign up online here.  

Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas staff and community recently gathered their lightly used and nearly new prom dresses to give to the Fairy Godmother Boutique. Additionally, sponsor Sara Loree’s Bridal and Formal, donated many dresses as well.  

“We’ve had tremendous community support,” Laverack says. “Thank you all for donating these beautiful dresses. Another huge thank you to those who signed up to be volunteer stylists during the event.” 

There will be dresses sizes 0-20 in a variety of styles. Personal stylists, makeup consultants and private dressing rooms will be available. 

There are still opportunities to volunteer, which can be done here.
