SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) — Hundreds of dresses on racks for a giveaway going on this weekend. Pretty Princesses of CNY, a group started by Kym Servello Gardner back in 2021 will be hosting this.
There is a twist this year though. Usually, all of their events are only for young girls under the age of 10 . But, for this holiday event is being held for boys of the young girls as well.
“As long as they are under the age of 10 and have registered before the event, brother, cousin, doesn’t matter there’s plenty of clothes here to give out,” said Servello Gardner.
With the holidays coming up, Servello Gardner said that this event is a way to bring joy and happiness to families who usually cannot afford to buy these dresses for their children.
Ann Jackson, Pretty Princesses CNY board member, said that her favorite part is seeing the joy on all the children’s faces when they walk in and see the dresses everywhere.
Over the past few months Servello Gardner and Jackson have been going to different areas around New York to buy the dresses, receiving donations and gifts from previous families.
Servello Gardner believes this event is going to be the biggest one yet.
“We are expected to get over 400 children for this event on Saturday,” said Servello Gardner.
At last years event, Servello Gardner said that they ran everything out of her house but things got chaotic quickly. This year she knew she had to expand their location to accommodate for the amount of people she expected to bring in.
