Project History

This annual Handled with Care Dress Boutique project started in 2012 when Allison,16, went out shopping for a prom dress and realized how hard it must be for girls that could not afford a new dress.  She really wanted to create a beautiful and dignified shopping experience and the seed of this idea grew into the Annual Dress Boutique. We now collect hundreds of new and gently worn dresses of all sizes for girls that can benefit from this one day shopping boutique. KHK partners with many schools and stores to collect all of the dresses, jewelry, shoes and accessories to make this spring event a memorable experience.  We also have hair consultations with professional stylists, make up and we end the night with a photo shoot for all of the guests! Last year, we hosted over 670 guests and assisted them with choosing 2-3 dresses, a pair of shoes, jewelry, accessories, makeup and hair consultations and a one of a kind photo shoot!
