Princess Tea Party Fundraiser - August 11th, 2018

This was so much fun!  I enjoyed the whole day!  There was so much to do for everyone of all ages!  And to be able to help out in some small way, the youth in Haiti is just an extra bonus!  Thank you SSP for hosting this chili contest!  If you do it again, count me in!

Past Events

The Chili Cookoff was a great event for a great cause.  My husband and I entered our chili for the contest.  My kids had a fun time in the kids area.  It was a wonderful day for the whole family. 


The Tea Party was a memory that will last a lifetime, at this formal tea party all of your favorite story book princesses were there to dance and play!  If a picture is worth a thousand words, the above pictures are a dream come true for everyone who attended the party!

                                A day your little prince or princess will never forget!  

Our first SSP Chili Cook Off was a huge success!  We had many contestants who came to showcase their special chili.  The contestants served up some very good chili to all who attended.  After that, there was a bake sale with more than enough goodies for any sweet tooth!  If chili was not your thing, we even had a concessions area with hot dogs and chips! 

There were fun fair type games for the kids as well as princesses to visit with.  Also Kauffman Chiropractic was there to give free analysis.  The National Parks Department showed up with a live tortoise and several furs of various animals from the region.  The kids loved petting the furs!  The Gary RailCats let Rusty come visit and even shake hands with the Chick-fil-A cow!

Over all it was a fun filled day for everyone who attended!  Many people were so excited  and had so much fun, they were asking about the details for next year already!
