Fairy Tale Ball               

4th Annual Fairy Tale Ball

The Childcare Resources Junior Board hosted the 4th annual Fairy Tale Ball August 28th, 2010, an enchanting event designed to raise funds to benefit children and families served by Childcare Resources.

The gala for children and adults held at the Birmingham Sheraton Ballroom featured dancing to live music by Just A Few Cats and over 50 fairy tale and whimsical characters that spent the evening entertaining guests. Highlights of the evening included the transformation of the frog prince, hip hop lessons by Tinkerbell and Peter Pan and a silent auction that featured a 10 day stay at a luxurious villa on St. Bart’s Island.

Created exclusively for the Fairy Tale Ball was Cinderella’s Candy Castle, which had sugar cookie and gingerbread walls, decorated with candy and icing and featured a drawbridge and a moat filled with candy bags for the children. Designed by Executive Banquet Chef Mike Rigot of the Sheraton Birmingham Hotel, this castle was the centerpiece of the evening drawing admirers and little nibblers all evening.

. Fox DeFuniak, III along with his grandchildren served as honorary chairs of the event, leading a successful corporate sponsorship campaign. CBS news anchor and Childcare Resources board member Sherri Jackson served as emcee.
