EMPOWERING GIRLS ONE DRESS AT A TIME
The Ruby Room is a nonprofit organization that provides formal gowns to Seattle area high school girls who are unable to purchase their own dance attire. Dresses and accessories are collected throughout the year and made available at boutiques in the spring. Each girl is paired with a personal shopper volunteer who assists her in picking out the perfect gown.
The Ruby Room was founded on the belief that everyone should be able to attend their high school events, regardless of their ability to pay. The Ruby Room opened its doors in 2002 and "leveled the dance floor" for all high school students.
2012 was our 10th anniversary and we're proud to say we've helped thousands of teens make prom memories. Last year we gave away 450 gowns and this year we anticipate another busy year. Dances are a significant milestone in the life of a high school student and you can contribute to a memory that will last a lifetime. Help us send these girls to a dance in elegance and style!
We are so grateful to our community partners and supporters. We couldn't do it without you!
