Blues Benefit Princess For A Day Event ®

Calling All Princesses!

Sunday, April 9, 2017

The Princess For A Day event on Sunday, April 9th, 2017 is an opportunity for Oregon children 2-18 to be treated like a princess for a day. It is designed to be a gift for foster children in the community as well as to raise awareness of local foster children.

This is a royal gathering for all the royal children in the land. This event is to celebrate the regal children both in foster care (and not) by giving them the royal treatment. This royal treatment includes being pampered, adorned in a new outfit fit for royalty, and a fancy tea party.

Foster children are granted free admission. Advanced registration is required for all children. All children are welcome. All attendees are welcome to be accompanied by their king or queen.

The day of princess pampering includes:

  • tea party lunch
  • hair, nails and makeup
  • photo shoot
  • princess outfit to keep

We gladly accept donations for this event. (Click here to learn more about donating!). Donations can include dresses, shoes, and other princess accessories. Would you like to sponsor this event? How can you make a difference to a child in foster care? Put a twinkle in the eye of a foster child and sponsor one of the rooms!
