Project PROMise

For many high school students, going to the prom is an event anticipated for years—but not going to the prom because the family can’t afford a formal dress can be devastating. Project PROMise helps provide formal dresses, shoes, and accessories to girls in need in Highline Public Schools.

Project PROMise is Back!

The 2023 Project PROMise event will be held on Friday and Saturday, April 14th & 15th at the Puget Sound Skills Center! Students from any high school in Highline in need of formal wear for prom can sign up for a personal shopping appointment to shop for new and gently used dresses, suits, shoes and accessories at no cost, with the help of a personal shopper. The event is open to students enrolled in Highline Public Schools, and by appointment only (click the pink button below to sign up for a shopping appointment!), and all genders welcome!

VOLUNTEER AT PROJECT PROMISE: We would be unable to present this event without the time and talents of volunteers. We’ll need assistance with a variety of positions — from set-up and takedown, loading and unloading, personal shoppers, restocking, and more! If you are interested in volunteering, you may sign up now via the button below!

Highline Schools Foundation has collected new and gently worn prom-appropriate dresses and accessories from our community. And each spring, Highline Public School high school students in need will be invited to “go shopping”  for the perfect dress and accessories for their prom. The dresses are offered to the students to keep, or they may return them to the Foundation to be used the following year.

Sponsorship and Donation Opportunities

Project PROMise sponsorship and donations provides individuals and businesses great exposure in our community, and provides Highline Schools Foundation with resources to support this program. Donation of services (such as hair styling, manicures and pedicures, and other spa treatments) are also greatly appreciated! 

Donations allow Highline Schools Foundation to:

  • Purchase hardware like hangers and dress racks
  • Provide dry cleaning for dresses as necessary
  • Provide alterations supplies for our volunteers
