(WOLO) COLUMBIA,S.C., --
One local organization turned Fairy Godmother for hundreds of local teenage girls looking for the dress of their dreams as they get ready for the prom.
For years, the Cinderella Project has been helping teenagers who may not have the means to get a dress, get everything they could need for the big night.
Some students not only found dresses, but shoes and accessories to go along with their gowns.
Organizers who donated the clothes to more than 4 hundred young ladies, say this year, they also gave gift cards to any of the students who were unable to find that perfect dress so they could buy one instead.
Event Organizer, Lisa Hosteler says their joy in finding something to make their night special is the reason why the event gets bigger and better each year.
"the look on their faces when they walk out of here with the dress of their dreams is amazing."
