As I write this, there are only 28 days until the 2017 Princess Event. Board members are in the process of drafting the referral forms to be mailed later this week.
Volunteer sign up just went live, click here to sign up: https://goo.gl/k9QtZi.
My challenge to volunteers for the year is to bring a friend, family member, or coworker with them to the event!
We are so excited to meet this year’s princesses. Thank you to every teacher, counselor, social worker, and volunteer that help us help make prom wonderful!
In case you missed the Facebook post, we officially have a date for the Eleventh Annual Princess Event!
We will be back at Southdale Mall March 11-12, 2017!
Every year, we wait patiently (while crossing all our fingers and toes) that Southdale will be able to provide temporary space for us. We appreciate the bus line accessibility and free parking!
What’s next? A lot of planning and organizing! Here’s a general timeline in case you are as excited as we are to get the sparkles flying for Prom 2017!
Volunteer sign ups will be posted in mid-February.
Princess referral forms will be mailed (via USPS) to schools in mid-February. School counselors and prom coordinators will be the intended recipients of these.
Princess sign-ups for the event will open in late February.
VOLUNTEERS! We will be in need of all volunteer positions this year. I challenge you to reach out and bring a friend. Spread the joy of giving back to your community.
