About Us: Celebrating Dreams and Empowering Futures at Promville
Welcome to Promville, where every day is a celebration of life and empowerment. Nestled in the heart of the Island of Oahu in Hawaii, Promville is more than just a city; it's a sanctuary of hope, beauty, and compassion. Here, we believe in the power of dreams and the strength of community. Our story began in 2013 with a vision to turn dreams into reality and to make a lasting impact on the lives of young women in need.
Our Purpose and Passion
Promville is more than a place; it's a promise. We're on a mission to transform dreams into dazzling realities, ensuring that every young woman has the opportunity to experience the magic of prom night. Our cornerstone event, the Prom Dress Drive & Giveaway Pop-Up, is a testament to our dedication. Held at various community events, shopping centers, malls, and retail stores throughout the year, these gatherings aren't just about dresses; they're about fostering inner beauty, instilling self-confidence, and igniting the spirit of giving.
The Heart of Promville
In our bustling city, we unite to support economically disadvantaged and underprivileged high school girls. Promville's Pop-Up events collect gently used formal dresses, handbags, fashion accessories, shoes, and unused cosmetics. These treasures pave the way for these young women to attend prom with pride, grace, and style. But Promville is more than just a wardrobe; it's a haven of empowerment. Through our events, we weave a tapestry of inner strength, encouraging young women to radiate confidence, kindness, and resilience.
The Promville Experience
As the sun sets on the horizon, Promville comes to life. Amidst the shimmering gowns and radiant smiles, our young women embark on a journey of discovery. At our Pop-Up events, they're not just selecting dresses; they're embracing dreams. A world of fashion, beauty, and wisdom unfolds before them, as they witness live fashion shows, beauty demonstrations, and connect with prom vendors. We take pride in not only preparing them for a night to remember but also empowering them with knowledge about etiquette, fashion, and safety.
An Unfortunate Farewell
It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the cancellation of the 2023 Promville's Prom Dress Drive and Giveaway Pop-Up Events. A shortage of staffing, limited volunteers, and constrained storage space for our cherished dresses have compelled us to make this difficult decision. While the spotlight dims on this year's events, our commitment to empowering young women continues to burn brightly.
A Call to Celebrate
As we bid farewell to this year's festivities, we extend our warmest wishes to the remarkable Class of 2023. May your prom be filled with joy, laughter, and unforgettable moments. Promville stands as a testament to the strength of community, the beauty of giving, and the unwavering belief in the dreams of every young woman.
Thank you for being a part of our journey. Explore the world of Promville, where dreams come to life, confidence soars, and every day is a 'Promville Day' – a day to celebrate life, dreams, and the incredible potential within each of us.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Scarlett Godinez-Dumadag: A Visionary with a Heart of Gold
Promville's journey began in 2013, born from the radiant spirit and unwavering determination of its founder, Scarlett Godinez-Dumadag. Stepping onto the stage of life with a purposeful passion, Scarlett understood the profound impact that a single act of kindness could have on the world.
A Personal Connection to Prom Dreams
Scarlett's journey was deeply rooted in her own experiences. Raised in the embrace of a financially disadvantaged home, she navigated the challenges that often accompany such circumstances. With a single parent by her side, she grew up embracing resilience and determination. Yet, when the spotlight turned to prom, a cherished milestone for many, financial constraints cast a shadow over her dreams. It was during these pivotal years that she emerged as the prom chairperson at Farrington High School during both her Junior and Senior years.
Cultivating Dreams through Challenges
Scarlett recognized that prom was more than a dance; it was an emblem of resilience, a testament to dreams transcending obstacles. In 2010, as she embarked on her journey as the founder of Beautiville Spa & Cafe, she made a commitment to herself and to the community that had shaped her. Guided by a desire to make dreams tangible for others, she transformed her personal journey into a beacon of hope.
A Legacy of Giving Back
Scarlett's mission wasn't just about dresses; it was about cultivating kindness and empowerment. The transformation of Beautiville's Prom Dress Drive and Prom Dress Giveaway events into Promville was the embodiment of her vision. "The beauty of these events is the gift of giving that just goes in circles," she articulated. She understood that the ripples of gratitude and empowerment would extend far beyond the dresses themselves. The young women who received these dresses had the opportunity to be part of a cycle of generosity, passing the torch to others or saving up to contribute in turn.
Embracing Change, Fostering Hope
Although Beautiville's doors closed in 2018, the essence of Scarlett's legacy lives on through Promville. For her, the significance lies not just in the events themselves, but in the seed of hope she planted within the hearts of countless teenagers. Scarlett envisions a future where those they help today will become the advocates of change and the wellspring of inspiration for tomorrow's youth.
A Symphony of Generosity
Promville thrives today due to the symphony of support from generous sponsors, donors, and volunteers. Scarlett's vision was woven into the fabric of community, where hearts united to empower young women and celebrate the potential within each of them.
Scarlett Godinez-Dumadag's legacy is etched in the stories of those whose dreams she touched. Her journey from a financially disadvantaged home to a beacon of hope reflects the indomitable power of the human spirit. Through her, Promville embodies the belief that dreams, no matter how humble their beginnings, have the power to radiate light, inspire change, and transform lives.
