A Valley woman needs your help to collect prom dresses for teens facing hardships.

If it shimmers, glitters, or shines, Joyce Jeskos is looking for it.

She is selling the dresses at dirt-cheap prices to teens in need.

What’s the price? Just $5!

Add some accessories and the total bill is likely to be just under $20.

The self proclaimed fairy godmother says she got the idea from another Valley woman almost a decade ago.

The snowbird has ataken the not-for-profit idea back to her hometown of Philadelphia where it has become another huge success.

The Prom Fair will be held February 16th and 17th in Phoenix for teens in need.

Jesko also needs donations and volunteers for the event. You can always drop off gowns at the Church.  Someone is always there.

Dresses in all sizes are needed, along with handbags, makeup and jewelry.
