The Year in Review. Created by Carole Atkins and Rhona Sallay in 2000, The Corsage Project helps economically disadvantaged high school students attend their prom by providing free formal-wear.
Each year, hundreds of volunteers come together at the Boutique Ball to assist and celebrate the achievements of more than 250 young women and men graduating from Toronto high schools. The Boutique Ball is an amazing bazaar featuring hundreds of dresses, shoes, purses, jewellery and accessories. Students spend the day with a personal shopper until they find a look that speaks to them personally. They also receive a mini-makeover.
Recently, The Corsage Project was recognized by the Children’s Aid Foundation with a Community Partner Award at its 2013 Recognition Night.
