The Belle of the Ball is an annual dress drive and college scholarship program sponsored by the Junior League of Brooklyn to provide formal attire for teenage girls preparing for senior prom, graduation and other formal events. The goal is to promote self-confidence and individual beauty and to transform each young woman into a princess on their prom night. The program also encourages intelligence through its scholarship program and fosters a sense of voluntarism in each participant.
The Junior League of Brooklyn, founded in 1910, is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
