For the past 15 years, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services’ Prom Project has made dreams come true for hundreds of high-school-age foster kids in Southeast Texas who might otherwise never attend one of the most memorable nights of their lives. Each year, the girls and boys start their days apart, each with their own surprise awaiting them. For the girls, cosmetology , fashion tips, new hairstyles and makeup at the Courtyard Cafe and Bakery in Groves.
It seems the boys were in for just as much pampering as the girls. Their day will begin with a complimentary lunch, after which they received a haircut and dress shirt. To top it off, the boys’ night will be culminated with a stylish trip of a Corvette of their choice driven by volunteers with the Tri-City Corvette Club.
“The Tri-City Corvette Club drove the boys down to the prom where the girls were anxiously awaiting their arrival outside, lining the road waiting for them to drive up,”
