Dreams Delivered Prom Boutique


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.

Every April 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. This year we served 105 students from around the Chicagoland area.

We happily accept donations of formal dresses, sparkling jewelry, evening shoes, and accessories. items should be appropriate for an 18-year-old and dresses should generally be less than three years old.  We also accept monetary donations.

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.
