The Princess Ball
TIARAS, SEQUENCE AND RAISING FUNDS FOR A GREAT CAUSE
Cystic Fibrosis Canada's Areas of Influence:
Can a room full of mini princesses have an affect on the life expectancy of a Canadian diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis? They sure can! Each year Cystic Fibrosis Canada holds The Princess Ball in Hamilton, Ontario as a way to raise funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis (CF), the most common fatal genetic disease affecting young Canadians. An estimated 1 in every 3,600 children born in Canada have CF.
The ball is a fun and engaging family event that takes place in a magnificently decorated Royal Ballroom at the Michelangelo Events & Conference Centre.
This January Jordan Engineering continued its tradition of serving as Royal Sponsor for the ball. A number of our team members and their families also joined in on the afternoon of festivities.
What exactly happens at a Princess Ball?
Upon entering the ball 'princesses' are greeted with a Royal Entrance that includes being fitted with corsages and sashes, having their photo taken and their names announced as they walk across the red carpet into the ballroom.
The afternoon has a host of different activities and events to keep the guests engaged including a nail spa, face painting, arts and crafts, DJ and dance floor, magic show and a tasty lunch buffet.
There is also an opportunity for learning through a touching video that covers what CF is and the challenges children diagnosed with the condition face.
Why do we support the Princess Ball?
Our community is important to us and we actively engage in it to create positive change. Being a part of The Princess Ball allows us to support an organization that has taken a multi-faceted approach to increasing the life expectancy of children born with CF from 4 to 50+ years. It also permits us to be present in a space most engineering companies are not, allowing people to ask 'why' and giving us an opportunity to share information about our company culture!
