He took her to the annual Princess Ball, the one held in the Land of Oz at Wyndham Glenview Suites on Friday, Feb. 10, and sponsored by the Glenview Park District. “I kept it a surprise,” Garner said. “I came home from work on Friday with a corsage for my 7-year-old princess and told her we were going to the Princess Ball. She was speechless, but the smile on her face said it all.” Siri Garner walked with her dad into the hotel lobby, which had been transformed into storybook land, equipped with its own sparkling green door that opened into the Land of Oz. The Oz characters — Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, Tin Woodman, Scarecrow and even the Wicked Witch of the West — greeted approximately 200 guests. The princesses dressed in an array of styles, fabric, lengths and colors, and some wore shades of the rainbow. Many used chiffon, taffeta, silk, nylon netting or gold lamé. They entered the ballroom with awe, as though they would meet the Wizard of Oz himself. Each table included its own green hot air balloon with an attached basket and a separate vase of flowers. “We have a lot waiting for everyone,” said Glenview Park District supervisor Andrea Juricic, who was like the Fairy Godmother of the evening. “There’s dancing — both fast and slow — for the princesses and their dads. Each princess and dad get a photo taken to bring home as a permanent reminder of the evening. There’ll be raffles during the ball. The princesses can even have their nails done.” Soon the aroma of food filled the room. The princesses lined up to fill their plates with small sliders, cheeses, sausages, pizzas, pasta, chicken kabobs, and pig-in-a-blankets, as well as tacos and nachos with cheese, tomatoes, guacamole, salsa and sour cream. The music started and the dancing began. Some couples were repeat attendees of the event. Others were firsttimers. “My dad and I have been to these balls seven times,” 12-year-old Sophia Kendall said. “It’s just fun to be with my dad and leave my little brother at home.” Addison Childs, 9 and sister, Delaney, 5, have attended four Princess Balls. “It’s a chance to bond with my daughters,” said Please see Ball, 18 Steve Kay, of Glenview, throws his daughter, Megan, 7, in the air during the Princess Ball on Friday, Feb. 10, at Wyndham Glenview Suites.
