Last February, the Osceola County Lodge #2523 of Kissimmee hosted their inaugural Cinderella’s Closet Gala Luncheon at the Kissimmee Bay Golf and Country Club. Prior to the event, one hundred gently used gowns had been donated by friends and family members of the lodge. Sixty of these were modeled by volunteers and auctioned at the luncheon. Through the auction, the lodge raised more than $3,000 that will go toward scholarship awards for Osceola County High School seniors.
All the gowns—including those auctioned—will be given to local high school girls who are unable to purchase a prom dress. By spreading the beauty, the lodge will enable many girls to attend the prom in elegance and make some magical memories.
