The Dress For Prom Gala

Celebrating 10 years of
Giving the Glam

 

June 9th at the

Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston

How it all started 10 years ago…

This year, I attended my Senior Prom, and it was amazing. I could not have done it without the help of Maristela and Fashion Moi Moi. She could style me from head to toe, and it was magical. I had a wonderful experience throughout this process. I learned new, inexpensive fashion tips for any occasion. I want to thank Maristela for this opportunity and for allowing me to feel and look like a princess on my prom night. I highly recommend Fashion Moi Moi to everyone looking for cool new fashion tips and consulting. Picking out my dress was my favorite experience; it was beautiful and the perfect fit for my body type. The accessories came together perfectly. My blue jewel-crusted dress was paired with a statement bracelet and a simplistic ring to match. What made my day all the more special was the number of compliments I received for my dress; the admiration was endless. I felt and looked like a goddess on my special night and I owe it all to Maristela and Fashion Moi Moi, Thank you for everything.

Who are we?

Giving The Glam provides an incredible prom experience for underserved urban and suburban high school seniors. We cover the cost of all attire and accessories for students who couldn’t otherwise afford to participate in their prom. Students are given an opportunity to attend their event in style, while we make a large impact on their self-esteem and confidence.

Giving The Glam is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization [Tax I.D.81-2960255] based in Massachusetts. It was created and established in 2014 by philanthropist Maristela Rapo and her daughter Alexis Rapo. 

 

Why do what we do?

Our organization helps financially challenged teens enjoy their high school prom experience. Each participant is provided with everything he or she will need to enjoy the prom in style – gowns, tuxedos, accessories, hair and makeup, professional photos, a video and car service to the venue.

But in the end, it’s not so much about the clothes, hair and makeup as it is about the rite of passage. From the young person’s point of view, it’s the opportunity and experience of a lifetime.

And

We Give the Glam but it’s THEIR Story.

Hear from our students how Giving the Glam has impacted their lives.

Diane

I really struggled as a person in my confidence of how I looked and feel about myself but everything you put me through I never felt so good about myself and proud, I never felt so good and loved about my body.

Hassan

I am so blessed to know Maristela. She cares about others. I had the best experience of my life of being one of the pupils who got selected for the Glam. I am thankful for everything you did for me and I will always  keep you in my mind.

Nakilah

I have never felt so confident, I knew I would look like a true princess. On the day of my prom all I had was butterflies, but I trusted that Mrs. Maristela. I couldn’t thank the Giving the Glam crew enough, they made my day perfect and helped build memories I will never forget.

Olivia

When I initially met Maristela, I was confused, lost and uncertain about what I was supposed to do with my life; but after getting to know her, now I know that life isn’t about being better or smarter or richer than others, its about being the best that I can be
