Created in 2000, The Corsage Project is a community-based program of the Children's Aid Foundation organized by a committee of volunteers from the Toronto area. The Corsage Project helps economically disadvantaged high school students attend their prom by providing free formal-wear. Each year, we assist approximately 250 young women who are graduating from Toronto high schools at our Boutique Ball – an incredible event that brings together women of all ages to share in the excitement of the day and celebrate the achievements of our participants.
On this special day, our event space is transformed into a giant shopping bazaar, featuring hundreds of dresses organized by size and colour and tables showcasing shoes, purses, jewellery and accessories.
Corsage Girls shop the various wares with their personal shopper until they complete their look and are then treated to a mini-makeover and goodie bags filled with gifts from our sponsors.
Our 2013 Boutique Ball was held on Sunday, April 21st.
Applications for our 2014 event are not being accepted at this time.
If you are a registered secondary school student who missed this year's event and are still in need of prom attire please contact our partner organization, New Circles at www.newcircles.ca or (416) 422-2591
