Fairy Grad Mother Program

The Pen High Fairy Grad Mother program is a volunteer group run by Pen High staff members. We fundraise to provide financial and personal assistance to graduating students who cannot afford to attend prom. We loan donated, drycleaned dresses, and cover the cost of tuxedo rentals, shoes, hair and esthetics appointments, and prom tickets.

Our Impact Why We Exist

Teenagers often have the same dreams regardless of place or station in the world, and prom is a shared celebration!

Our Story What We Do

The Fairy Grad Mother committee accepts applications from Pen High students. We meet with the students to determine what preparations they can manage and where they need assistance. The committee then arranges for girls to try on borrowed dresses and boys to go for tuxedo rental fittings. We find salons and businesses to provide hair and esthetics and drycleaning at a reduced price. We coordinate the purchase of prom tickets as well.

Our Programs How We Do It

We look to community partners for support. We apply for grants, write letters to the editor, apply to PAC for funding.

What You Can Do

We accept donations from community members and groups who would like to give back in this way.
