The Fairy Godmother Foundation
In 2017, Lizette Estebeth decided to become a fairy godmother for the prom attendees of Langley. By launching the Fairy Godmother Foundation, Lizette’s goal was to collect prom dresses to give to girls who couldn’t afford the often very expensive options. Attending prom is all about creating a lasting memory and having the most magical night to start off a new part in every person’s life. Due to time constraints, last year Lizette was only able to help 2 prom goers. This year, Lizette is excited to reveal that over 450 dresses have been donated to the foundation. Through these donations, she hopes that every girl can have a wonderful memory filled night!
