Belle of the Ball Project is a 501(C) 3 non-profit organization, which provides prom and homecoming dresses to high school girls in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk, Hernando, Citrus. and surrounding counties for their high school dances. Our mission statement is “No girl should be denied the opportunity to attend her high school dance because of financial difficulties” We are a 100% volunteer organization and rely on donations and volunteers. For volunteer and donation information, please visit our website.

We distribute dresses twice yearly, usually 4 dates in the fall for homecoming and 4 dates again in the spring for prom. High school girls can also get dresses for home-school dances and military balls during these dates. Our volunteers have created a beautifully decorated 5,000 sq. ft. boutique for girls` shopping enjoyment. Girls can choose from over 3,000 dresses organized by size and color. Many of the dresses are new with tags. Girls qualify for a dress if they appear in person and attest that they are currently having financial difficulties. No documentation is necessary. We provide all forms. Girls also qualify if they have been referred by school or agency officials, or other non-profit organization. No referral letter is required. We operate on the honor system. Our 3,000+ dress boutique is located at 1210 Holt Ave. Clearwater, FL 33755. Our boutique is open ONLY on designated shopping days. We are not open year round.

All shopping days are held on Saturdays between the hours of 10am and 2pm. No appointments are necessary, nor do we make them.
