This special event has become an annual "go to" for people of the community who have a passion for philanthropy, education & children & scholarship.

Without the continued financial support from the community Princess, Inc. would not be able to continue such a great work--for that we've decided to honor "our community" and those who work tirelessly in it--through personal efforts and organized groups---impacted our community is a positive way! Please join us in celebrating "our community"--there's always exciting live entertainment, awesome themed baskets for raffle and just a grand time of networking! All proceeds go towards the programming efforts of Princess, Inc.
