Tempe teenager Samantha Fox, her mother and a couple of friends came up with a great idea several years ago.

The Cinderella Affair, a prom-dress donation drive, has grown into a Valley-wide annual charity operation, collecting more than 2,000 prom dresses in 2005.

For this and many years of volunteer work with the National Charity League, the Corona del Sol High School senior will be presented with the United Way's East Valley Youth Volunteer of the Year Award on Thursday. Volunteering always has been a way of life for her, she said, but being selected for the award was a complete surprise. "
