May 2, 2009 (San Diego)—It sounds too good to be true—but it’s real! Operation Fairy Godmother, a program offered by the Soroptomists International of Valle de Oro, will be giving away free prom dresses to all girls who present a valid high school I.D. card today. Now you can be like Cinderella. (Sorry, Prince Charming is not included.) The Soroptomists do, however, provide beautiful shoes and jewelry to accessorize your dream dress.

To choose your free prom gown, come to the Rehab Conference Center at Alvarado Hospital, 6645 Alvarado Road in San Diego (just west of La Mesa) between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. today.

The mission of Soroptomists is to improve the lives of girls and women in local communities and throughout the world.
