CORNWALL, Ontario – There was magic in the air at the fifth annual Princess Ball organized by the Kinettes on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019.
The event was the biggest and most successful edition yet with 300 tickets sold, the event was sold out in early December.
The princess guests were treated to complimentary valet parking provided by the Kinsmen, a royal knight opened the doors for them, Town Crier Wes Libbey announced their entrance, and they were greeted by a court of characters such as the Beast and Belle.
Each princess was given a magic wand and a little bit of fairy dust. When all the princesses gathered together in the ball room, they waved their wands to reveal Cinderella’s magic carriage.
“I think it is important for parents to have something to do with their kids,” said Stacey Grondin, one of the event organizers. “What better way to support the community than to have a fun day.”
Money raised by the event went to support Beyond 21, CTC, the Boys & Girls Club and Baldwin House.
The event was attended by Kin Can National President Erin Thompson.
“I’ve never been to a Princess Ball before and I was so thrilled to be invited here today,” she said. “The magic they’re creating for these families is something they’ll never forget.”
