[GREENVILLE, S.C. January 26, 2011] – Every young woman deserves a happily ever after. That is one reason Collins & Lacy, PC associate Anne Marie Hempy is volunteering with the Cinderella Project for the fourth year in a row.
Hempy is the Committee Chair of The South Carolina Bar Foundation’s Young Lawyer Division’s Cinderella Project. This year she is also serving as the coordinator of the Greenville Project. The SC Bar started the Cinderella Project ten years ago. It involves gathering donations of gently worn formal gowns, shoes and accessories for disadvantaged high school students. In March, young ladies from area high schools are invited to a boutique to “shop” for a dress and other items at no cost.
When she’s not helping South Carolina businesses stay in business at her job with Collins & Lacy, Anne Marie likes to get in touch with her inner-fashionista by volunteering to help with the Cinderella Project.
Anne Marie says every girl deserves to feel like a princess at her prom. “Some of these girls have never shopped for a formal gown before, and they get so excited. I love to help them find the right dress – to help them feel beautiful.”
Not only is Anne Marie helping at this year’s event, but the Collins & Lacy Greenville office is one of the drop-off sites. It’s located at 37 Villa Road, Suite 500. Other sites include:
- SavVy, 1803 Augusta Street
- Talbots, The Shops of Greenridge
- Trunk Treasurers
- Wade Hampton Plaza Shopping Center, Taylors
You can drop items from now until Friday March 4th during business hours.
