I Am P.I.N.K. to gather prom dresses, shoes for girls in need

On Sunday, April 13, from 12:30-5 p.m., Eastern Michigan University mentoring organization I Am P.I.N.K. is hosting their third annual “Glitz and Glam Prom Affair” in Room 304 at the EMU Student Center. Every year, P.I.N.K. hosts this event for senior high school girls who are in need of shoes and dresses for prom.

The acronym I Am P.I.N.K. stands for “I AM Positive that my past will not define my future, Introducing myself to the world, Never giving up on my dreams and Knocking on success’s door.” The group’s mission is to simply provide a fun environment for inner city girls to build positive relationships with peers, parents, friends and professionals. They also aim to prevent the girls from experiencing violence, teen pregnancy, low self-esteem, low graduation rates, drugs and alcohol.
