DRESS EVENT 286A
The room was filled with poufy tutus and huge smiles as surprised families were treated to fun fashions, sparkly shoes, headbands, and cupcakes! Enthusiastic young Hollywood celebs escorted little girls through racks of colorful dresses, signed autographs, and posed for photos. The little girls couldn’t wait to change into their carefully chosen dresses and run around the party together. The whole room was brought to tears when one mother thanked everyone, saying that it was her daughters’ first birthday and she couldn’t afford to give her a present… She was so grateful to have a beautiful new dress given to her.
