Queen for a Day - Save the Date

On Saturday, August 12th the Elgin Country Club was filled with laughter and music during the 15th annual Queen for a Day event put on by the YWCA Elgin and long-time volunteer Donna Anderson. Queen for a Day was attended by 111 community members, many of whom have attend for more than 5 years. During this event the younger attendees were pampered by stylists from the Tricoci University of Elgin, create magical pixie dust necklace, dressed up and took pictures with princesses and entertained the crowd by singing "When You Wish Upon a Star" (lead by Risé Jones of Hamilton Wings). Everyone joined together to play name-that-tune lead by Margaret Brady on the piano, enjoy a fabulous brunch, be enchanted by Margaret Fox's beautiful voice and crown this year's Royal Court. Didn't get to attend this year? Don't miss out again, the next Queen for a Day will be held on August 11, 2018.

We would like to introduce to you the 2017 YWCA Elgin Royal Court....
