Denver boutique gives away prom dresses for 5th year in a row

DENVER -- Bella Boutique isn't necessarily easy to find. It doesn't have a big sign on the corner, or a flashy entrance. But magic is happening inside.

For the fifth year in a row Tia Hunsperger has opened the doors to her boutique to make girls' wishes come true. Hunsperger's nonprofit makes sure girls go to their school prom in a beautiful dress.

The boutique, funded by donations, is full of donated dresses ready to be worn by someone who needs it most.

"Maybe dad lost their job last week and a prom dress isn’t very important on the list. Whatever the need is we’re happy to help," said Hunsperger.

Denver7 caught up with Steffani Garcia as she was looking for a dress, one she wouldn't be able to afford if it weren't for Bella Boutique.

"Having them give us the free dress makes the whole prom shopping experience really good," she said with a big smile on her face.

Steffani happened to be the 200th girl to walk into Bella Boutique this prom season.

"We have more days to go and more girls coming which is great," said Hunsperger.

Girls can still contact Bella Boutique for a fitting. For more information, click here.
