Get Back Your Special Enchanted Evening With Cupid’s Ball 2023
Guys, I know the past couple of years have had some major ups and downs.
To be real, the pandemic changed things. It just did. What we did at home, how we shopped, where we went... everything changed. And some things went away. Some permanently, some temporarily. Some adapted and changed, some grew or shrank.
One thing was put on pause was a special event the Women's Service League of Sedalia had held every year - The Cupid's Ball. If you don't know what that is, I'll give you the quick lowdown. Basically the WSL holds a dance for little girls and a special guy in their lives to have a fancy night out. Whether that's a Dad, Step-Dad, an Uncle, a Grandpa, a big Brother, or just someone they love, doesn't matter. The point is the girls get to wear a fancy dress, dance, and have a special night where they feel like a princess. Or as much as they want to feel like one, that is.
This year's theme is Enchanted Evening. They've had different themes like Wizard of Oz, Frozen, Alice in Wonderland, etc. Whatever the girls will like! They're going to have a live DJ, professional photo booths, face painting, crafts, snacks, dancing, selfie stations, and a lot more. And to me, here's the best bit. Most of the time, the WSL has put an age limit on the girls who can attend. Because, you know, otherwise everyone would attend. I don't think the kids wanna hang out with a 43 year old in a tiara (read: me). Normally the event is for girls aged 5-12. But this year, they've decided to let the girls who missed out the last couple of years have their one last hurrah. This year, girls ages 13 and 14 are welcome to attend. So they do get to make that last memory with their special guy after all!
That is, of course, assuming a teenager wants to be seen in public with their Dad. I don't know if I can help you with that one, Pops. But hey, if she does, why not get yourself some tickets?!
The Cupid's Ball will be on January 21, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Smith Cotton High School Cafeteria. If you get your tickets now through the 13th, it's only $20 a person. After the early bird special though it only goes up to $25. You can get the tickets online here.
