Hi! My name is Rachel Hornbuckle and I’m the founder of The Belle of the Ball Foundation. The purpose of The Belle of the Ball Foundation is to make certain that every girl on her Prom Night is able to make her Prom Dreams Come True. That’s important because Prom is one of the highlights of a girl’s high school experience. And it is one that calls for a knock-out, slamming dress that sets her apart as with her own unique look on that night.

But, if you are like me, we all know there are girls who are unable to afford the dress they want and some even unable to get a dress at all. I know how this is because I have personally gone through my own tough times where I could not get what I wanted, so I know the challenges that can arise sometimes when making these dreams come true. Because of my own experiences, it is my belief that no young girl should have the stress of trying to figure out how prom night will come to life. No matter the reason or need, the important thing is that their prom dreams come true! I created this foundation so that all girls would be able to have a beautiful dress for that special evening.

So, it is the goal of the Belle of the Ball foundation to collect beautiful, trendy dresses and then give them away to anyone in need - free of charge - So that each girl on their special night feels like the Belle of the Ball! So, I would like you to help me to make someone else’s prom dream come true while you get some style ideas, makeup tips for your prom too. I need you and all of your friends to meet me and my celebrity guests on I’ve got lots of dresses hanging in my closet that I don’t wear anymore, but I know they would be beautiful on someone else and that they would make a big difference in a girl’s life. Don’t you have those dresses to? Well, if so…please bring one or more of your dresses (cleaned and on a hanger) and join me in making someone else’s dream come true.

Then, get ready to see the hottest prom styles as the models hit the runway... in an exclusive Prom Fashion Show by Neiman Marcus.

And hey, that’s not all; the first 50 girls that bring a dress will also get a FREE GLAM Kit full of glamorous goodies! 

And everyone will get a chance to meet some surprise celebrities!
