Home front – November 20


Little girls are invited to spend an enchanted afternoon fit for a princess while raising money for cystic fibrosis at the same time. Tickets go on sale on Friday at Parkland Mall for the second annual Princess Ball, which will run on Feb. 16, 2013. The ball features an enchanted ballroom, princesses, snacks, face painting, a craft table, a candy bar, wishing well and dancing. Girls are encouraged to dress their very best. For the adults, there’s a silent auction and elegant appetizer-style snacks. Proceeds from this year’s event will go to the Central Alberta chapter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. The event is scheduled from 1 to 5 p.m. on Feb. 16 at the Sheraton Red Deer Hotel. Tickets are $40 per person. For more information, call 403-347-5075 or go to Facebook and search The Princess Ball.
