We just can’t stop thinking about all of the beautiful smiles on the faces of these beautiful children. 😍

It was a day to shower some super brave children with love and attention – and some pampering, too! More than 100 children and their families came to Be Our Guest at Salvatore’s for a day of magic and dancing! The children, all pediatric patients and their parents and siblings, were treated to the day which included arts and crafts, face painting, balloons, and so much dancing with Disney Princesses and Sports Mascots. Costumes were sent out to children who could pick their favorite Princess or Prince to dress as. The smiles on their faces are something we will never forget. This is what it is all about!!

To be honest, most of the events we plan like this are fundraisers and it’s about making money to help those in need. This event was so different – no funds were raised, rather just spent trying to give these pediatric patients and their families a day to celebrate and that is exactly what we did!
These brave little ones had a ball at the ball!

As you know, we could not have done this without such a supportive, generous community.
