The Princess Prom took place recently at Stanton Middle School in Kent. It was presented by the marketing education class, DECA, at Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent.
The annual semiformal father-daughter dance has become well known throughout the Kent community as a night of fun, dancing, and father-daughter bonding.
This year, the father-daughter couples danced the night away under a lighted dance floor surrounded by the "princess ambience" created by the Roosevelt DECA students.
The prom was a fun-filled evening for the fathers and daughters as well as the DECA students who got to participate by dressing up as princesses, selling light-up wands to benefit Sandy Hook Elementary School, or dancing with the girls.
The event was a fundraiser for the DECA students' state and national business competition. The event also featured raffle baskets.
The fathers and daughters were able to use a photo booth provided by Graham River Photography.
"Overall, Princess Prom created a great night for the father-daughter couples as well as a great learning experience for Kent Roosevelt High School's DECA class," said Maddie Hill, senior at Roosevelt and Princess Prom coordinator.
