Many young women dream of something special for Christmas, but when your family doesn’t have much money, dreams don’t often become reality. Bobbie Lopez of All Brides Beautiful understands well the dreams of young women, and has joined the ranks of the modern-day Fairy Godmother. She donates gowns, shoes and jewelry from her bridal salon to a nonprofit organization located in Cleveland, who makes those dreams come true.


My Fairy Godmother Inc., provides gently worn or new formal dresses and accessories for a nominal fee to Cleveland area high school juniors & seniors who lack financial resources to purchase attire for their high school prom or related formal events. They also accept monetary contributions to defray the cost of necessary services such as dry cleaning, retail clothing supplies and alterations.


Says Lopez, “Even Cinderella needed a little help. Every young lady should have the opportunity to go to prom looking her loveliest.”
