Searching for Cinderella

COM-CinderellaSearch-PromThe District Exchange, a Carmel consignment shop, recently announced its Cinderella Search contest. Throughout this month, the shop will be accepting entries and nominations of high school girls from around the area who are most deserving of a Cinderella-style prom makeover. The winning entrant will receive a prom dress, hair, make-up, nails, facial, corsage, boutonniere, jewelry, shoes, photography, tanning and dinner for two.

“There are so many girls that have overcome adversity, illness, or personal situations or even stand out because they make a difference in their community by being selfless and giving of their time to help others,” said Amanda Newman, owner of The District Exchange. “Girls like this should be recognized and commended for what they’ve overcome and the differences they make in people’s lives, although recognition is not usually what they are looking for.”

Newman has joined forces with a number of businesses across northern Indianapolis and Carmel to make the Cinderella Search a reality. ASternberg Photo and Sharon Zimmer will be providing photo, hair and makeup on the day of the event. Carmel Florist will be providing a corsage and boutonniere. Carmel’s Sun Tan City even will be providing a tanning package as part of the prom makeover. Abuelo’s will be providing dinner for two for the winning girl and her date.

To nominate a young lady for the Cinderella Search, turn in an entry form and include the nominee’s name, phone number, high school and why she deserves to be this year’s Cinderella. Any girl attending a local high school, not just Carmel, is welcome to enter the contest. Entry forms can be picked up at The District Exchange, 210 E. Main St., Carmel, and must be submitted by April 1.
