Description

Belle of the Ball Program, our annual dress drive and scholarship program to provide formal attire for teenage girls preparing for senior prom and other events. The program culminates with the “Day of Beauty,” a dress and accessory giveaway and “mini-makeover” day which will take place in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The event also invites High School seniors to an image and self-esteem workshop where we discuss the real meaning of beauty and encourage volunteerism. Following this we present scholarships to qualified seniors who submit essays on topics ranging from self-esteem to the definition of beauty.

The 8th Annual Belle of the Ball program is expected to serve at least 200 young women and their families throughout the Borough of Brooklyn. The goal of our program is to build self-esteem, help each girl in attendance feel like a princess on prom night and to encourage them to fulfill their potential. The Junior League of Brooklyn (JLB) is proud that we provided more scholarships this year, over $17,000 vs. the $600 in scholarships we awarded in 2013 the year we introduced the scholarship component to the program.

Our goal this year is to raise $20,000 to fund the program and scholarships. To achieve this, we need the assistance of generous donors like you. Your dollars at work, because your donations make a difference! Please help us fund our 2015-2016 winners today. The Junior League of Brooklyn is a 501(c)(3) organization.
