Character Booking and Utah Foster Care come together to create a magical event that will garner support for foster children throughout Utah.
Character Booking will join together with Utah Foster Care to present children with a magical and memorable night on January 23, at the Winter Ball event in Salt Lake City. Character Booking is a Utah-based event company that creates enchanted parties by providing special visits from popular fairy tale princes and princesses. The Winter Ball will feature special activities and photo ops with princesses like Cinderella, the Little Mermaid, and more. Aside from fun with princes and princesses, this event will give attendees and donors the opportunity to sponsor children through Utah Foster Care.
Along with other Fairy Godmother sponsors, doTERRA International has made a donation for the event that will go toward sponsoring children through Utah Foster Care. According to Utah Foster Care, a nonprofit organization created by the Utah legislature, there are approximately 2,700 Utah children in foster care. The organization works to connect children in need with foster parents, while supporting and educating families who are currently caring for foster children.
When a child is taken into foster care, it is typically due to neglect or abuse. Utah Foster Care works to place children in loving homes that offer stability, until the child is able to reunite with their parents. In many cases, this reunification isn’t possible—giving foster parents the option to adopt. Utah Foster Care provides children with support by acting as their advocate, while offering resources and guidance to foster parents with assistance from state and local agencies.
With so many children in need of foster care both nation-wide and in Utah, events like the Winter Ball can procure funds for children and families with limited resources. Although Character Booking is known for throwing magical and whimsical parties for children who idolize princes and princesses, they also strive to get involved in the community and give back to those in need. Character Booking representatives have planned this event with foster children in mind, saying, “We are excited for the Winter Ball and for the chance to make each child who attends the event feel like a prince or princess—as many Utah foster children rarely get that opportunity.”
Sponsorships from companies like doTERRA will allow Character Booking and Utah Foster Care to provide truly special opportunities for Utah children who are currently in foster care. To learn more about the Winter Ball or to see how you can get tickets, visit Character Booking’s website.
