Taffeta Tea

Taffeta-Tea---FINAL-jdelchiaro-032514-v4-standard (1)

The Princess Project hosted its third annual Taffeta Tea at Terra Gallery on Sunday, April 13th, 2014.  As always, we were incredibly thankful for such a fantastic turnout of guests and donors this year.  We had 170 guests this year, and hope to see even more people next year.

This year’s event raised more than $15,000 – we’re so grateful for everyone’s generosity, which directly supports our legacy of helping more than 20,000 teens throughout California celebrate prom with self-confidence and style!

Many thanks to our sponsors and donors who helped make this event such a huge success.  We are especially grateful to the speakers who joined us for this year’s event: Paula Fonacier from METS, Erin Gevertz from Smart Program, and Kelsey Wong, an attendee from one of our past giveaways.   We thank them for sharing their stories.  To see pictures from this year’s tea, visit our Photos page.  For more information about next year’s Taffeta Tea, please email taffetatea@princessproject.org.

Thank you to this year’s Taffeta Tea Sponsors!
