  • Description
    2021 will mark our 13th year of providing foster and community children alike the opportunity to experience a day of pampering and fun. In 2020, we catered to more than 350 “princesses” and we expect to surpass that number in 2021! This is a regal gathering for all the children in the land. This event is to celebrate the children both in foster care and not by giving them the royal treatment. This includes being pampered, adorned in a new outfit fit for royalty, and a fancy tea party.
