On Sunday, November 10th, Suz Salon hosted an event called “Princess Day Out.” Over 45 girls from ages 3 to 12 years old attended in their prettiest dresses awaiting an afternoon of pampering. For some, this would be their very first Spa Day!
The event was on a first come first serve basis and thus by 1:30pm–a half hour before the event was set to begin–princesses were already lined up outside the door of Suz Salon. The owner of the salon, Sue Bushnell, had already started on the early birds. With only 6 volunteers, she knew a headstart was crucial for this event to be successful.
Though there was a wait, mothers and daughters alike were patient and in good spirits the whole event. Snacks and drinks were in abundance, princess movies played and of course, there was the best part–Belle and her friends were in attendance!
Disney’s star princesses including Cinderella, Rapunzel and Merida were all there to meet the eager junior royalty. Throughout the 6 hour event, the princesses sang, danced and took pictures with anyone who asked.
The all-inclusive Princess Pack was a hit, with almost every single princess choosing the whole spa. Toe and nails were painted and makeup was done. Little princesses could pick out every necklace, ring, bracelet, and earrings. They even took home their very own handcrafted tiara made specially by Sue! Overall, moms knew the experience their daughter received had been worth the wait.
Sue finally closed down the shop late Sunday night. After all the hard work and wonderful faces, Princess Day Out raised over $1,200 for Beale Street Theater’s Renovation Project and Angle Homes Matching Grant Campaign.
Beale Street Theater could not be more appreciative of the dedication Suz Salon has given. We are grateful for the numerous stylists, volunteers, and princesses that helped make this fundraiser a success. We also give great thanks to the Kingman community for the belief and ongoing support we receive at Beale Street Theater. Thank you so much.
If you want to see more of our beautiful Belle, make sure to buy tickets for Beale Street Theater’s production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. at bealestreettheater.com/tickets at the Artbug on 402 E. Beale St. or at the door!
Do you have a daughter that is 12 years old or younger? Would you love to do something special with her? Young girls will now have the chance to meet their favorite princesses, all while having their very own spa day.
This Sunday, Suz Salon has partnered with Beale Street Theater to bring an enchanting event to the young girls here in Kingman. The event is called “Princess Day Out” and will take place on November 10th, from 2pm-5pm at Suz Salon on 114 Tucker Street. There will be special visits from Belle, Ariel, Rapunzel, and a few of their friends!
This past Tuesday, we had the privilege to meet Sue Bushnell at Suz Salon. While there,we were able to interview Sue about the Princess Day Out event.
When we asked Sue why she wanted to put this event on and how she came up with the idea, she told us that she just wanted to help fundraise for Beale Street Theater. “I had help. [Skyler] knew that I wanted to help fundraise and Beauty and the Beast needed to be promoted so she came up with this idea.” Sue noted that there will be refreshments served, such as juice boxes, cupcakes, and cookies. Additional seating in the front and back of the salon will be provided so you can relax, snack, and watch as your daughters get pampered.
The Princess Package is all-inclusive with hairstyling, makeup, and mani-pedis. There will also be tiaras, earrings, and rings for girls to take home. If you don’t want to pay the $25 for the Princess Package, you have the choice to pay individual prices, which can be found below:
Hair: $10; Nails: $10; Toes: $10; Makeup: $5
You can expect your daughter to be there for about 45 minutes to an hour to have the full princess treatment. Six volunteers will be available the whole day to help make your little girls shine bright. Girls are encouraged to come dressed up in their favorite princess outfits for this event and can expect a whole day of fun. For many of these girls, this will be their first spa day and an experience they will never forget. This is also a great bonding experience for mothers and their daughters.
All proceeds will go to Beale Street Theater’s Angle Homes Matching Grant Campaign to help build a theater and fine arts home-base in downtown Kingman. For more information on this event, you can go to the Facebook page, Princess Day Out, or check out the poster on our homepage. Also, be on the lookout for a video during the week which you can also find on our website.
This is an event that you don’t want to miss out on! Come to Suz Salon on November 10th, with clean, fresh hair and faces to enjoy a variety of treats, pampering, and a day of fun. It’s sure to be a day fit for a princess.
Kingman has talent and has come together to kickoff the fundraising effort to renovate the Beale Street Theater. It was held in the old Elks building located at Fourth and Oak Street in downtown Kingman. The building was donated for our use by owner Scott Dunton. He has been a great supporter of our effort.
The evening started with Marilyn Moser playing in the courtyard as supporters entered. She was followed by Black Lemon. Upon entering the building, attendees were treated to an amazing art display, organized by our dedicated volunteers to showcase local artists. Refreshments, donated by local businesses and our volunteers were served in the bar area. A silent auction was also available to patrons in the same area. We received a number of donations from businesses and local artists that helped raise funds during the evening.
The main gallery showcased talent from across our community. We were excited to have so many performing artists share their abilities. They filled up a full three hours of entertainment. It was a wonderful evening.
Please give a big THANK YOU to our sponsors who helped us pull of a very successful event.
The talent line up for the night was incredible. Besides the performances happening inside we had music outside in the courtyard including Music by Black Lemon and Marilyn Moser.
