HASLETT, Mich. (WLNS) - There's a fight over "Cinderella's Closet," but it's not over dresses -- it's over the name. Two charity events are taking place this weekend to help high school girls who may not be able to afford a dress, find the perfect gown for their special night.
"Cinderella's Closet" is an annual event that helps make about 200 girls prom dress dreams come true in the Lansing area.
"The best part really is the girls reactions. They get to come in and they get to find that perfect dress that's exactly what they're looking for," said Rachael Lindermann, a Baryames Cleaners employee and Cinderella's Closet organizer.
The girls will have nearly 2,000 dresses to choose from in different colors, styles, and sizes.
However, there's an issue this year. There are two "Cinderella Closet" events.
Radio station WJIM 97.5 NOW FM has a problem with it. The station used to partner with Baryames Cleaners for the event, but now the two companies are holding separate "Cinderella's Closet" events under the same name.
97.5 says it's because they couldn't agree on the same day to hold the event, but Baryames says it's because he refused to advertise with the station.
Art Baryames, president of Baryames says he received the cease and desist letter from the radio station's attorney earlier this week ordering them to stop using the name "Cinderella's Closet" or face "other legal remedies."
Station spokesperson Rick Sarata says Baryames' event is "infringing on 97.5 NOW FM's rights in the "Cinderella's Closet" event name."
The cease and desist letter states, "Baryames's actions in this case, including its direct knowledge of Citadel's ownership of the CINDERELLA'S CLOSET mark, plainly suggest that the CINDERELLA'S CLOSET mark is being used by you in bad faith with the express purpose of hijacking this mark from Citadel and misguding the public to believe there is a connection between Baryames's event and Citadel's annual "Cinderella's Closet" event."
"It was my idea to begin with," said Baryames. "I thought it was mean-spirited. I thought it was completely contrary to what Cinderella's Closet is all about."
Despite the cease and desist order, Baraymes still plans to keep its "Cinderella's Closet" event name and host it too. It'll take place on Sunday, April 14 from 9 a.m. to 1p.m. at Haslett Village Square.
97.5's "Cinderella's Closet" event will be on Saturday, April 13 by appointment only. Information about 97.5's event is located under the "Seen on 6" tab.
