Would you like to help make this magical afternoon happen for some very special princesses?
Here's our Sponsorship Information.

What Enchantments Await the Little Princesses?
Little Princesses will be announced as they enter the Royal Ballroom and escorted to their seats by a handsome Prince.  They will be treated to scrumptious goodies, a dance with a Prince from the Asheville Ballet, and an opportunity to have their photo taken with a Prince and Princess.  At the end of the Ball, each Little Princess will receive a special gift bag full of wonderful and magical items!

What About the Royal Parents?
As a parent, you will be at the back of the Ballroom while your Little Princess receives the royal treatment.  You will be welcome to photograph the festivities as your Princess dances with her Prince, and you will learn about Arts For Life and our work with children facing serious illnesses.  Due to limited space, we will have room for one parent per Princess in the Ballroom, and there is no registration fee for parents.  You will be treated to snacks and drinks as you enjoy watching your Little Princess have a truly enchanted experience!

Special Prizes
Once Upon A Time: A Princess Ball is a fundraiser for Arts For Life, a nonprofit organization bringing art, music, and creative writing experiences to children and teens facing the biggest challenges of their lives as they battle cancer and other serious illnesses. 

To help us raise money, we ask that you create a personal fundraising page for you and your Princess. The money you raise from your family members, friends, neighbors, schoolmates, and colleagues will help us provide top-notch art and music experiences for thousands of children in four North Carolina hospitals.  
Arts for Life is not a United Way agency, so grassroots fundraisers like this are very important to us.

At the Ball, our top fundraisers will receive special gifts and prizes in recognition of their success and support. 
The top fundraiser will have a special dance to end the Ball with Prince Charming!

Seating is limited, so register your Princess now!

The cost to register one Little Princess is $50

Thank you for helping make a difference in the lives of very special children while you and your Little Princess have a truly magical time!
