On Sunday, November 10th, Suz Salon hosted an event called “Princess Day Out.” Over 45 girls from ages 3 to 12 years old attended in their prettiest dresses awaiting an afternoon of pampering. For some, this would be their very first Spa Day!
The event was on a first come first serve basis and thus by 1:30pm–a half hour before the event was set to begin–princesses were already lined up outside the door of Suz Salon. The owner of the salon, Sue Bushnell, had already started on the early birds. With only 6 volunteers, she knew a headstart was crucial for this event to be successful.
Though there was a wait, mothers and daughters alike were patient and in good spirits the whole event. Snacks and drinks were in abundance, princess movies played and of course, there was the best part–Belle and her friends were in attendance!
Disney’s star princesses including Cinderella, Rapunzel and Merida were all there to meet the eager junior royalty. Throughout the 6 hour event, the princesses sang, danced and took pictures with anyone who asked.
The all-inclusive Princess Pack was a hit, with almost every single princess choosing the whole spa. Toe and nails were painted and makeup was done. Little princesses could pick out every necklace, ring, bracelet, and earrings. They even took home their very own handcrafted tiara made specially by Sue! Overall, moms knew the experience their daughter received had been worth the wait.
Sue finally closed down the shop late Sunday night. After all the hard work and wonderful faces, Princess Day Out raised over $1,200 for Beale Street Theater’s Renovation Project and Angle Homes Matching Grant Campaign.
Beale Street Theater could not be more appreciative of the dedication Suz Salon has given. We are grateful for the numerous stylists, volunteers, and princesses that helped make this fundraiser a success. We also give great thanks to the Kingman community for the belief and ongoing support we receive at Beale Street Theater. Thank you so much.
