For many girls, Prom is a night that they want to remember forever -a night that can also end up costing an un-affordable amount of money for some girls. The Ruby Slipper offers these girls, and any other girls, a chance to get a prom dress they love at a discounted price.

A student-led organization that was founded by EVHS art teacher Terri Carpenter, the club members share an underlying belief that all women deserve to feel respected, self-confident, and beautiful. The organization, open to all female East View students, hosts an array of events including an annual tea empowerment party, a biannual ‘Girl Talk’, and a pre-prom lunchtime fashion show to model the dresses.

Last year, The Ruby Slipper provided 68 prom dresses for $300-$500 cheaper than they would have been in-stores. They plan to start another closet for interview clothes, formal clothe, etc.

To donate to The Ruby Slipper please drop off items at EVHS or find more information by calling 512-943-1800.
