The Woman’s Club of Evanston believes every student, regardless of means, should be able to attend senior prom. In that spirit, we created Dreams Delivered.
On April 16-18, 2023, with our partner, The Ivy Pearl Foundation, Inc., the philanthropic arm of the Delta Chi Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., our historic clubhouse will be transformed into a very special prom boutique. New and nearly new formal dresses, shoes, jewelry, and accessories are provided free of charge to any student. Over the past 15 years, Dreams Delivered has outfitted more than 900 students.
Dreams Delivered was featured on CBS2 Chicago in April 2022. Take a look!
Donate To Dreams Delivered: Dresses should be “new or nearly new," preferably three (3) years old or less, or a classic, “timeless” design. Keep in mind the girls are looking for age-appropriate prom styles they see in the stores. We do not accept men's tuxedos or suits.
Thank you for your interest in donating to Dreams Delivered. We are suspending the dress collection until June 1, 2022. Please check back then on how you can donate to the project.
Thank you to Kenny the Kleener, Chicago’s Discount Dry Cleaner, which provides dry cleaning services. Kenny has dry cleaned hundreds of dresses for Dreams Delivered, free of charge. He is our Fairy Godfather and we could not do it without him.
