(CBS) — Girls traveled from across the Midwest to a South Side school to get everything they need for prom — for free.
The first girl in line outside of the Price School, 4531 S. Drexel Av., arrived at 9:30 p.m. Friday. At 7 a.m. Saturday, an hour before the doors opened, more than 300 girls were in line, some of whom traveled several hundred miles for the chance to get a dress and matching shoes, accessories, jewelry and make-up.READ MORE: Local Businesses Hope For Similar Outcome Of Shoppers For Small Business Saturday
Dresses kept arriving through the day from Operation Glass Slipper co-sponsors Use Again and A.W. Zengeler Cleaners, so those who weren’t in line when the doors opened were not out of luck.
