“If instead of a gem, or even a flower,
We should cast the gift of a loving thought
Into the heart of a friend,
That would be giving as the Angels give.”
Angela Rose-O’Brien founded Angela’s Angels in 2006. This collaboration began by requesting a donation from Michele Bolish, a former Bridal Salon owner. Michele kicked off this project by donating over 100 “new” gowns, which were earmarked to be utilized for our local financially disadvantaged young women.
Collectively, an extraordinary group of ladies and friends from the Laurel Highlands Chapter of the Women’s Business Network (WBN) immediately helped to launch the project.
Collecting gowns, jewelry, purses, etc., both new and gently worn, to have available for these ‘special’ junior and senior high school girls to wear to the prom, is the foundation of the project. All available items are displayed at various times at a designated location for viewing by the girls in order for them to make the ‘perfect’ selection. Angela’s Angels is the perfect match to these outstanding WBN members’ motto: “Success means even more when it happens to someone special”
