The Coast Capri found itself in the presence of royalty for the annual Children’s Enchanted Charity Ball.

Local disc jockey B Mack dressed in royal attire to host the event.

“This is the second annual [dance] for Heroes for Little Heroes which was started by our founder Teagan MacDougall. It’s basically hospital visits for children who are sick. What they do is they take this element of this enchanted ball to these hospitals. They’ll dress up in Disney princess costumes and go and visit these children.”

The event was sold out for the second year in a row, even after increasing capacity to 244. Ticket sales help fund for Heroes for Little Heroes throughout the year.

“All these kids are having a blast just checking out all these Disney princesses and playing some fun tunes, Disney-themed stuff and some other dance filled stuff, and then some prizes as well.”

The three-hour event on June 11 included a pizza dinner, crown and wand making, balloon animals, a photo booth, and lots of dancing. Several adults joined in on the fun by dressing up in costume and hitting the dance floor with their kids.
