MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Prom is right around the corner for many Minnesota teens. But it’s a big financial commitment for parents.

The latest studies show that prom costs range between $400 to $3,000.

But there is one group working to make it more affordable and they need your help. Operation Glass Slipper in St. Louis Park, Minn. works to help everyone afford prom.

At Mary Kay’s Bridal, they’ll hold a donation drive on Friday from 5 p.m to 8 p.m. Folks are asked to bring in new or gently used special occasion dresses, shoes, purses, jewelry and accessories.

For every donation, guests will receive a raffle ticket.

Pam and Emily Philipp, a mother-daughter team, founded Operation Glass Slipper in 2006.

Chris Stanford went to check out the collection and find out more about this nonprofit organization.
