A Princess for a Day Event!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending A Princess For A Day fundraiser event at the oh so sophisticated Room Service Lounge in NYC.  Remember this pretty in purple photo from last weeks sneak peak?  Well I have all of the photos ready for posting! But first, here's a little background on the event. A Princess For A Day is an amazing not-for-profit organization that promotes the importance of education by rewarding underprivileged high school students who achieve exceptional grades, an outstanding prom experience!  A deserving Princess will be rewarded with prom day hairstyling, make-up, dress alterations, transportation, a photographer, and the pièce de résistance, a stunning gown worn by a celebrity! The first Princess received a fabulous gown from Oscar nominated actress, rapper, and singer Queen Latifah!  Which high school student wouldn’t want to wear a celebrity gown to their prom? A Princess for a Day will make it happen! Find out exactly how it’s done on APFAD website. 

 
The event was hosted  by actor/comedian Guy Torry, who kept the crowd laughing.

 I was thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful event for an amazing cause.  I contributed to the event with a sweet candy table outfitted in purple, cream, and mirrors for a touch of glitz, but keeping it simple and elegant.
