For high school students, one of the most exciting and anticipated nights of the year is the Senior Prom.
On Friday, May 21, The Glass Slipper Foundation will host ‘A Night To Remember’, which will give students a fun, safe, alcohol-free and drug-free evening celebrating the end of the school year and all of the hard work that our students have accomplished.
The Glass Slipper Foundation, founded by Inglewood native Cinder Eller-Kimbell in January of 2021, will provide mentorship to the community’s youth by supporting and nurturing their social, emotional, and cultural well-being. When it comes to youth outreach and involvement throughout the city, organizing and hosting A Night To Remember is just one of the many initiatives for this nonprofit organization. There is much more on the horizon.
Eller-Kimbell, an alumnus of Inglewood’s Morningside High School, has worked for the city of Inglewood for 27 years. She is now the city’s Senior Community Affairs Liaison. With the desire for more community outreach, she launched The Glass Slipper Foundation with the hopes of elevating and educating young people in and around Inglewood.
“If you know me, then you know that I am the community. I have always advocated for those who couldn’t and didn’t know how to speak for themselves,” says Eller-Kimbell.
On May 21, A Night To Remember will be exactly what the name implies– a joyful event that students can look back on for decades to come, and some day, may even tell their own children about.
The ‘mini-prom’ will consist of students from Morningside High School, Animo Inglewood City of Champions, Youth Build Continuation School, Fairfax High School, and Colony High School. There will be 30-32 high school seniors, along with an additional small number of juniors.
The Glass Slipper Foundation looks forward to curating this event, and any help from the community would be so greatly appreciated. If you are in the position to donate, your contribution will help fund entertainment, food, and a commemorative gift for the graduates.
Money donations will make all the difference in the world, but The Glass Slipper Foundation will also gladly accept supplies, products, gift certificates, cards, or door prizes. A pick-up can be scheduled for any of these items that you would like to donate.
