Teens grant wishes for real-life Cinderellas

Two Monmouth County teenagers are working to make sure money problems don't ruin prom experiences for financially struggling students.

Katie Adams and Stephanie Tomasetta are the brains and brawn behind Cinderella's Closet. The project accepted donations of dresses, suits and accessories for prom season. Participants were then able to put together their own outfit at a dress fair.

The program was open to all teenagers in Monmouth County. Organizers sent letters to schools across the county offering the program's services for anyone in need.

Though the suits and dresses were free to participants, a $20 donation was suggested. All proceeds went to Students Against Drunk Driving.
