Glamour Gowns & Suit Up - CASA of Los Angeles

The Glamour Gowns and Suit Up (GGSU) event provides complimentary, brand new formal attire and accessories to young women and men, age 15+, in the Los Angeles foster care system. The event is produced each year by the GGSU committee in conjunction with CASA of Los Angeles. Thus far, GGSU has provided more than 5,000 dresses to young women who may not have otherwise been able to receive them. More than 400 young ladies receive dresses each spring. In 2015, for the first time, formal wear and suits were also distributed to young men.

We aim to create a heartfelt enrichment event for high schoolers in foster care. Glamour Gowns and Suit Up not only provides dresses and suits, but also helps build self-esteem, self-confidence, and an increased feeling of self-worth. Our hope is the experience will have a lasting and positive effect on these young people. Financial circumstances often do not allow for “non-essential” yet important items like prom dresses or suits for formal dances. Glamour Gowns and Suit Up seeks to create lasting, positive memories for milestone events like proms, in the lives of young people who have often endured and overcome difficult circumstances.
