PHILIPPI, W.Va. – The Alderson Broaddus University Acrobatics & Tumbling team and the community service organization, NOVO, are teaming up together to give back to the young women in Barbour County. The groups will be hosting the annual Cinderella’s Closet on Friday, March 27, 2015, at 7 p.m. at the Garden Market, located across from Rite Aid in downtown Philippi.
Students and community members of AB have donated their gently used formal/prom dresses to give young women the chance to feel like Cinderella for a night. . Throughout the evening the Acrobatics and Tumbling team and NOVO will also be talking about body image and self-esteem.
“This is a good way to educate and encourage the young girls to embrace who they are and love themselves inside and out,” said Katie Nunley, Acrobatics and Tumbling student-athlete and coordinator of the event.
Young women in Barbour County are encouraged to stop by and pick out a dress for their formal dance or prom. Cost is on a donation basis, so participants can pick a dress and pay whatever amount they can afford.
The following morning, Saturday, March 28, all community members are invited to attend an Easter Egg Hunt, sponsored by NOVO, on the campus of Alderson Broaddus University.
Registration for the Easter Egg Hunt will take place in Hamer Campus Center starting at 11 am with festivities beginning at 11:30 am. Afterwards, community members are also encouraged to attend the final Acrobatics and Tumbling home meet Saturday afternoon beginning at 1:00PM in Rex Pyles Arena.
