Event Information

#GivingTuesday is a day to give back. It is a day to recognize all that we have, and all that we can share. This day is about making a difference. Everyone has something they can give. During this time of Thanksgiving and Holiday Cheer, we ask that you help, by simply giving back. It takes two minutes. Two minutes to change the world. What you donate today will make a difference in your community. What you give will change the life of a child. It is almost the holiday season, and every child deserves a home for the holidays. So help make that a reality by giving today.

Princess for a Day 2018

Thank You!

What an amazing day it was! It was our best year yet. 370 princesses walked down thered carpet this year, and spent the day dancing to their favorite Disney songs with their favorite Disney princesses.

We could not have done it without our amazing donors, volunteers, and princess. This event is only possible because of the amazing community we live in. We asked and YOU delivered! We had over 1200 dresses, 650 tiaras, 550 pairs of shoes, all of it donated by YOU! Local businesses donated all of the food provided at the event. We had 110+ volunteers who came out to make this day possible. Every year we are blessed by the amazing people that work to transform our children into princesses!

Registration Information

You are invited to a ROYAL event for all the magnificent children in the land. Our Princess for a Day event provides a unique experience that will last a lifetime and creates unforgettable memories for foster children and community children alike. During this event, our “princesses” experience a day of pampering fit for royalty. A fun-filled day of makeovers, a photo session, even a red carpet entrance into the Princess Tea Party completes this memorable journey.

Foster children are granted free admission. General admission for non-foster princesses is $50.00 per child. ALL children are welcome! Advanced registration is required for all children. Each registered child must be chaperoned by their King or Queen (parent/adult representative). Due to limited space, we can only accommodate one King or Queen per registered princess, so please leave all wicked step-sisters and forest creatures at home.

Princess for A Day Event Tips

We strongly suggest that all children wear shorts and a tee-shirt or a bathing suit under their regular clothing that can be worn under the princess garments. We have limited dressing rooms and this can ensure that they can try on/change with ease and without delay. Please bring a bag (with their name on it) to carry their belongings.


The Valley River Inn, A Family For Every Child, its volunteers and technicians are not responsible for the safety of the children who attend. The attending parent/guardian, caseworker or foster parent is solely responsible for the registered child(ren) and is expected to remain in attendance and to supervise the registered child(ren) throughout the entire event. The Valley River Inn, A Family For Every Child, its volunteers and technicians cannot escort any child to the restroom.

By sending in this registration form, I, the attending adult/case worker/guardian, have read the disclaimer above and do agree.

A Home for the Holidays

On behalf of A Family for Every Child and our A Home For The Holidays Auction, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to partner with us to support this worthwhile event benefiting foster children in search of their forever families. Individual tickets are only $100.00 for a delicious meal and fine wine! Check out our registration form for all the ways you can be involved!

Join us in support of our tenth annual ‘A Home for the Holidays’ dinner and auction. This ‘Winter Wonderland’ themed night consists of dinner, auction packages both silent and live, our famous dessert dash, an impressive wine wall selection, and a beautiful holiday celebration.

Along with dozens of dedicated event volunteers, we are asking you to support us by donating and/or attending our Annual Event. “A Home for the Holidays” is responsible for a large portion of our operating budget for the year. These funds allow us to oversee the vital programs that we administer, such as Mentoring, Family Preservation, Family Finding, and Matching Assistance.

Attend, volunteer, sponsor or donate. There are many ways to get involved. If you are not able to attend, you are still welcome to sponsor a table and have your logo/name displayed at our event. You can also donate items to our silent and oral auctions. We are looking for tickets to shows or games, get-a-ways and much more. Contact our event team for more information on what items you can donate.

With your help, we are making a positive and tangible impact in the lives of waiting foster children. We understand that you have many opportunities to support worthwhile programs in our community and appreciate your consideration.
