Talbot Marketing Helps Create Keepsakes to Treasure

Talbot Logo Feb 27

The Princess Ball is all about making precious memories; from getting ready together, to the excitement of walking our royal red carpet, to capturing the moment they meet their favourite Princess. Talbot Marketing is pleased to help capture one of these memories, by providing beautiful custom pens for one of our most popular keepsakes; the Prince and Princess autograph books!

PrincessBallTOLR-366Each child that attends the Ball will be given a keepsake autograph book and pen from Talbot Marketing, the largest full service Promotion and Incentive Company in Canada, in operation for over 125 years! Their customers consist of small-mid size businesses within rural communities, to fortune 500 companies in virtually every major industry within North America. Talbot’s head offices and distribution centre are located in a brand-new, 30,000 sq. ft. facility in London, Ontario, and they currently boast over 100 skilled sales professionals in every province across the country.

Talbot Marketing’s generous donation will help our guests preserve the memory of meeting their favourite royalty for years to come!

Princesses love natural beauty products from Kiss Naturals

Kiss Naturals Logo_1We all know that Princesses love to keep it natural: running around barefoot, communing with wildlife, singing in forests, that sort of thing. So we were thrilled that Kiss Naturals, the Canadian producer of fun, one-of-a-kind craft kits that use only high quality natural ingredients, has generously donated dozens of their amazing Hair Chalk and Face Painting kits to our children’s raffle.

photo 2As parents, we want to ensure that the products our children use are as natural as possible. We’re talking about their delicate skin, after all! Kiss Naturals believe that Nature got it right the first time. They don’t add fillers, additives, dyes or synthetics to any of their products. They simply use Nature’s ingredients in their purest form. And even better, they personally test all of their products on their own families so they know the products are safe and effective for ours.

A huge thank you to Kiss Naturals for their very generous donation. You can thank them too by liking their Facebook page, check out their new Instagram, or by visiting their website to discover all of the amazing craft kits available in your local toy stores.

Great Pretenders Ignites Imaginations at The Princess Ball

Great Pretenders logo-01

Once upon a time, there was a mom troubled by the lack fun and imaginative toys for her children. Baffled by this, she set out on her ambitious journey to come up with creative, pretend-play toys that would light up any child’s imagination. Fast forward; her endeavours transcended into a vastly successful dress-up and costume business, Great Pretenders.

Great Pretenders and The Princess Ball

It is only fitting then that Great Pretenders would also strive to fulfill the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses and disabilities by donating to The Princess Ball. This year, the amazing folks at Great Pretenders have donated a stunning gown, cape, crown, shoes, necklace, and a perfect doll-sized replica of the dress to our children’s raffle. This whimsical and beautifully made prize will delight the winner, and raise a ton of money for Make-A-Wish Foundation of Canada.

If you would like to win this prize, among dozens of other exciting and fun items, don’t forget to pick up your children’s raffle tickets at the Ball on April 19th, only $10 for 5 tickets!

Please take a few moments to follow Great Pretenders on Instagram, Twitter, and Pintrest, as well as liking them on Facebook. Their beautiful range of costumes for boys and girls are truly inspirational!

Thank you Great Pretenders for your generous donation. Now, do you make adult sizes?!

Welcome Back Wendy Leszkowicz Photography

Wendy Leszkowicz Photography will once again join us as an Official Photographer at The Princess Ball.

Wendy_Leszkowicz_Photography

Last year, Wendy captured some magical moments at The Princess Ball. We are thrilled that she is able to join us again as an official photographer. If you see Wendy (you’ll know her by her big smile and big camera!) make sure you strike a pose. All photography taken at The Princess Ball will be available for our guests to download at their convenience through a password protected website. Passwords will be given to our guests after the event.

Photography is a passion for Wendy that started in 2005 when she got her very first Point and Shoot Canon. She remembers the anticipation of waiting to see the pictures and having tangible memories of the experience. Since then she has submerged herself in nature as well as landscape photography and most recently candid photography. Her camera is never far from reach and is a constant companion.

The Princess Ball is once again pleased to announce that Home Trust Company has joined The 2015 Princess Ball as our Gold Level Sponsor.

Home Trust

Home Trust Company is one of Canada’s leading trust companies. They offer Canadians a wide range of financial product and service alternatives, including mortgages, Visa cards, deposits and retail credit services. We focus primarily on a unique segment of the Canadian marketplace: consumers who do not have traditional credit backgrounds and whose specific needs are not met by larger financial institutions. They cater to self-employed entrepreneurs, people with past credit issues and borrowers with equity in their property who do not qualify due to lack of provable income or little credit history.

With offices across the country from Halifax to Vancouver, and a head office in downtown Toronto, they are able to offer thousands of Canadians the alternative financial solutions they need. Whether it’s helping you to buy your first home, consolidate higher-interest loans and credit cards to save you money, or renovate your dream house, they’ve got the flexible alternative solutions to help you meet your goals.

Home Trust is honoured to be a Gold Level Sponsor of The 2015 Princess Ball, and their generous sponsorship will help children with life-threatening illnesses have their wish come true.
