Dreams Delivered Prom Boutique

P LogoThe Woman’s Club of Evanston believes that every student in Evanston, regardless of means, should be able to attend senior prom.  In that spirit, we created Dreams Delivered.  Each spring our historic clubhouse is transformed into a very special prom boutique.  New and nearly new formal dresses, shoes, jewelry and accessories are provided free of charge to any Evanston Township High School student.  Over the past 9 years, Dreams Delivered has outfitted more than 600 ETHS students.

Evanston Township High School Students:
Students who would like to sign up to attend should contact
Mary Collins, ETHS Community Service Coordinator, (847) 424-7662 collinsm@eths.k12.il.us
Nichole Boyd, ETHS Student Activities Director,  (847) 424-7949 boydn@eths.k12.il.us
Every student must have an appointment to participate.


Our 2017 Donation Drive will take place in February and March.  Please check back on this website for a list of drop-off locations.

Donations are accepted year round at The Woman’s Club of Evanston, 1702 Chicago Avenue.  Call (847) 475-3800 to arrange a time.  The dresses should be “new or nearly new”, preferably three years old or less, or a classic, “timeless” design.  Keep in mind that the girls are looking for prom styles that they see in the stores.
