Princess for a Day 2019

Thank You!

We had nearly 300 Princesses attend the event, and we truly could not have done it without our wonderful volunteers! We were amazed and incredibly thankful for the dedication, energy, and hard work that every volunteer put into making the day run smoothly! From making sandwiches to curling hair, setting up the venue to helping the princesses find dresses, each and every volunteer made a tremendous impact, and helped make the day magical!

Event Information

Calling All Princesses!

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.

The Royal Treatment

  • The princesses will each begin their journey in the Princess Salon where their personal Makeover Team will assist them with choosing their tiara followed by hair, make-up and nail services. Don't forget to ask about our Glitter Station! 
  • Next, the princesses will move to the Royal Dressing Boutique where our Princess Stylists will help them select a gown and slippers and of course, accessories!  
  • Each princess will commemorate the event with a personal photo session with one of our professional photographers and receive one photo quality print as a keepsake.
  • Finally, each princess will be announced from the red carpet as they make their regal entrance into the Royal Tea Party room where refreshments will be served and dancing will commence!  Keep an eye out... there may be Disney Princesses among us!
  • Every princess will get to take home their gown, slippers, and crown!
*Each princess chaperone is required to stay with their child(ren) the entire event.  Children may never be left unattended.

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!
