Princess for a Day 2020

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

Thank you to everyone involved!

This year was a major success in our Princess for a Day history books! We had nearly 350 Princesses across the land gallivant throughout the royal castle, going room to room to complete their Princess transformation. The energy was high, the smiles were wide, and EVERYONE played a major part in this event. 

We want to give an extra big thanks to all of our Room Leads:

Delaney Barrett & Cheryl Graham in the Hair & Makeup Room
Rebecca Morgan in the Dress & Accessory Room
Diane Batenhorst in the Red Carpet & Princess Corridor
Diana Mortensen & Beverly Wheeler in the Tea Party Room

And thank you to Princess Perfection for providing all of the amazing characters for the event!

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!

Thank you so much to all of the amazing people from the University of Oregon ROTC! We appreciate that you come through for us every year!

*Each princess chaperone is required to stay with their child(ren) the entire event.  Children may never be left unattended.

Admission

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.

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!
