Home > Causes > Help A Princess To The Ball

Give Away and donate your gently used ball gowns, cocktail dresses, evening shoes and accessories to be made available through a ‘shopping day’ at Camp Pendleton to allow young marine wives the opportunity to ‘shop’ for evening wear for the upcoming Marine Ball that takes place in early November.   At the Camp Pendleton Event area we create a boutique atmosphere for the ladies and for two days, we invite spouses to come to the “boutique” and shop for their gown, shoes and accessories.  In addition, talented volunteers conduct on-site fittings and alterations (at no cost) so the ladies can leave with their completed look tailored just for them!

Ballgown Shopping 7New or Gently Used Items We Are Looking For:

  • Gowns – full length, tea length, and even at the knee.
  • Shoes – dressy heels that could be worn with a gown.
  • Purses – evening hand bags.
  • Wraps & dressing shawls.
  • Jewelry – rhinestones, pearls, etc.

Bells of Freedom assists in this annual effort beginning in July each year by collecting gently used gowns, cocktail dresses, dress shoes, bags, wraps and accessories and welcomes community volunteers to aide in the sorting of donations, set up/breakdown as well as acting as personal stylists and babysitters each year.
