Princess Project makes prom dreams come true

on March 17, 2011

The Princess Project, a nonprofit based in San Francisco, has been making prom dreams come true for high school girls in the Bay Area for the last decade. This year, the project was able to fill an empty storefront in downtown San Francisco with nearly 6,000 donated dresses. Girls were given 30 minutes to search for their perfect prom dress and choose one accessory to bring with them on their special night. On Saturday, Oakland North caught up with Oakland High senior Sophia Lu as she searched for her prom dress. Christina Lopez has the story.
