On Thursday, March 22, Holly Hyman came to Westhill for the Cinderella Project 2018. This was the fifth year that Hyman has run the Cinderella Project, and despite snow days and delays, the event occurred without a hitch. The event lasted from 7 a.m. until about 3:30 in the afternoon. Despite the delay yesterday, Hyman and others from boutiques including A Step Ahead were there at 7 a.m. ready to sell. In just the one day the Cinderella Project spent at Westhill, Hyman along with her team managed to sell over 70 dresses. The prices ranged from 0 to 20 dollars. “A lot of them were free,” Hyman said.

Adults at the event were also able to pay for students if needed. Full racks of prom dresses, graduation dresses and tuxedos could be found in room 118. The room was packed after school with students looking for the perfect outfit for prom night. Hyman helped students find a dress or tuxedo jacket that fit them best. There was also a table full of accessories and nail polish for students to buy for prom night, gift cards for pedicures were also available. Hyman and The Cinderella Project will be making their way to Stamford High on March 29.
