Do you remember your junior and senior prom? Boy do I! I decided to only attend my junior prom with my two besties and our dates. We went out to chinese for dinner and then headed to prom where we had a blast tearing up the dance floor until coming home and watching William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes until around 3am in the morning... yep, it was a good night!
While I look back on that night with fondness, there are many who do not have that opportunity... but hope is not lost on that fact! THE SAND BOX, a local non-profit based out of Concord, North Carolina provides numerous children and families the chance to live it up for a night of celebration, dancing, and all around wholesome family fun at their own prom in a luxury hotel and the utmost in dining! Who doesn't love to get dressed up and spoiled right! In addition, their main goal is to provide funds and support to children who are battling cancer and other terminal illnesses (God bless their ventures)!
In anticipation of the big night there are several annual fundraisers held. One of those is the "Operation Dress & Pop-Up Shop" held this year on Saturday, July 13, 2019 from 10am - 4pm at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center in Concord, NC. Suds Me Up Buttercup will be there offering a wide variety of bath and body products to help pamper anyone planning on attending the big event or just looking for items to pamper your skin any day of the week!
Also, the public is invited to this event to shop over 1,000 designer wedding, bridal, prom, pageant, and formal dresses ranging from sizes 0-32 at a discounted price! It is sure to be a day of fun with all the excitement in the air and also numerous raffles and prizes will also be given away throughout the day.
If that weren't enough, while there be sure to sponsor a child so they can attend the "2019 AN EVENING OF BELIEVING PROM" and have an experience of a lifetime! I could go on and on about all the goodness this non-profit provides but the best way to learn about all they do is come out and experience everything they have to offer in-person!
