Little girls from the community took on the trappings of royalty Thursday (Nov. 6) at Wilmington College when they donned crowns and other adornments at the second annual Princess Party hosted by Delta Theta Sigma Lil Sis sorority.

Nearly three-dozen children, accompanied by their parents, had their fingernails painted, along with putting on bracelets, necklaces and rings featuring giant gemstones.

Also, the sorority members — many dressed in gowns themselves — led the children in royalty-themed games.

It was all for fun — and a good cause, as the cash proceeds will benefit the Child Life Department at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. In addition to monetary donations, the sorority will present craft items, including coloring books, crayons, markers, colored pencils and non-toxic modeling clay, to the hospital.

DTS Lil Sis member Laura Hawkins proclaimed the Princess Party a success and wished to thank participants and those that supported the event.

“We had a great night of fun acting like princesses for an amazing cause,” she said.
