Graves County Middle School Jr. Beta Club presents Princess Tea Party to benefit Ronald McDonald House
Written by Megan Dobrose and Hannah Hall, Jr. Beta Officers
Some 110 little princesses and their families, joined together recently for the first annual Graves County Middle School Princess Tea Party. The event was organized by the Graves County Middle School Junior Beta Club to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House in Louisville, an organization that gives families a place to stay while their children are in Kosair Children’s Hospital.
Princesses Snow White, Belle, Jasmine, Ariel, Tiana, Cinderella, and Prince Charming posed with each little girl for pictures. While the girls were at the party, they did a craft, had their nails and face painted, and were served cupcakes and lemonade. Many girls enjoyed this day and said they couldn’t wait to come back next year. Tori Thomasson, age 7, said, “I enjoyed the princess tea party. The part that I liked the most was meeting the princesses, especially my favorite, Tiana, from The Princess and The Frog.”
The Junior Beta Club raised over $1,600 from this event, and hope to do more events like this in the future. A special thanks goes out to the Farmington Friendship Homemakers who provided the cupcakes, and Lindee Hartsfield from City Limits, (270) 247-8266, who did the hair for the princesses.
