Our 10th Graduation Season a Success!

posted by The Princess Shop    |   August 15, 2017 11:30

"Thank you so much to everyone that helped me make this day truly special for me. When I first found out about the princess shop I never knew it was this amazing ! It was truly a day I will NEVER forget. I felt like a princess for sure and I got so many compliments on my make up hair and especially my gorgeous dress ! Thank you thank you thaaaaank you!" -Dacy, 2017 Princess Graduate

This June, we completed our 10th graduation season providing the Dress Program to 134 female-identified students graduating from school programs from 10 different communities across Saskatchewan.

Since the first graduation season in 2008, we have directly impacted the lives of 890 women on their graduation day! Some of these Princess Graduates have continued with our programs for mentorship (Fairy Godmother Program) and scholarships and skill development workshops (Next Chapter Program). 

We would like to express our sincere thanks to our sponsors for supporting our 10th graduation season:

Diamond Sponsor Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon

Emerald Sponsor Federated Co-operatives Ltd.

Ruby Sponsor Wright Construction Western Inc.

Friends: SIGA, Centennial 360, EY

 

 

Sponsor a Princess Graduate: Dakota Dunes Community Development Corporation

Since 2010, we have had 65 mentorship matches in the Fairy Godmother Program! Some of these matches that are in the program today have continued from as far back as 2010.

Through the Next Chapter Program, we have been able to award over $150,000 in scholarships and bursaries, thanks to the amazing sponsors we have had contributing to this program. 

Most of our graduates are grade 12 students, however we honour requests from Grade 8s and post-secondary institutions. Our goal is to ensure that all female-identified students can attend their graduation ceremony and celebration stress-free, and then continue to pursue success in the next chapter!

It is more than a dress – everyone deserves the opportunity to recognize their accomplishments and participate fully in their graduation celebration.

An Exciting Start to The Princess Shop's 10th Year

posted by The Princess Shop    |   October 6, 2016 12:14

Back to School means back to routines and getting down to business, which is what we’ve been doing at The Princess Shop! The change of season has the The Princess Shop team changing gears from summer and getting ready for the exciting year ahead of us!

The Princess Shop team had a great summer that was kicked off with The Perfectly Pink Appreciation BBQ, which was an awesome opportunity to celebrate a successful graduation season with all of our Princess Graduates. This summer we had a number of fundraisers including our first ever Wine-raiser, Firkin Friday at Fionn MacCool’s and Broadway Street Fair with KR Jewelry. Our volunteers also had so much fun with Back Then & Again Jewelry, selling old inventory at The Saskatoon Comic and Entertainment Expo

 

 

Now that the summer is over and autumn (or winter?!) is upon us, The Princess Shop team has been getting back to routine and planning events for the coming months! The 2016/2017 Fairy Godmother Program has commenced! The first official activity in September was held at the University of Saskatchewan. The program coordinators, Emily and Susan, created a photo scavenger hunt for the matches to have fun with. This activity was to expose the Princess Graduates to campus in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, while working together with their Fairy Godmother. Some of the questions were designed to get them thinking about post-secondary studies and what they would possibly like to pursue, and others were just for fun! The activity was also a great form of exercise as the matches were running back and forth all over campus! The October activity will consist of a self-confidence workshop put on by MASALA Model & Talent. Future activities that the coordinators are looking into are a self defense classes, healthy cooking classe, and a personal finance session with TD Bank to name a few!

Coming up we are having The Fourth Annual Steak Fundraiser for The Princess Shop at The Sutherland Bar for the Saskatchewan Roughriders' away game vs. The Toronto Argonauts on October 15, 2016. This is going to be a fun event to cheer on The Riders, while supporting The Princess Shop! There will be a number of awesome raffle prizes that will be available to win! Tickets are only $20 and you can get yours by contacting The Princess Shop at info@theprincessshop.ca or phone (306) 222-3311!

Last, but certainly not least getting back to routine means starting to plan for the 10th Annual Glass Slipper Benefit for Princesses! The Princess Shop volunteer team has already started brainstorming in preparation to make this year the biggest and best year yet! Make sure you save the date for April 5, 2017, it’s going to be an event you don’t want to miss!
