The first annual “Knight for a Princess” fundraising event was recently held at the Rugby Eagles Club. It was a magical night of gorgeous dresses, fancy shoes and beautifully fixed hair for all the girls. The little princesses and their daddies were all beaming with pride as this was truly a night for magic. The Eagles, decorated in the Disney Frozen theme, was enchanting with snowflakes and a silver arch on display. The range of ages for the princesses were as young as one and as mature as 20 years old.

There were 58 girls who attended and danced the night away with their dad, grandpa, or uncles. Howling Horse Productions out of Harvey provided the music and Portraits by Misti took photographs. Miss Geographic Center 2015 – Lexi Wyman was also there to entertain the girls with two songs she wrote and produced.

Lexi is a senior at Newburg High School this year and will be representing Rugby at s state pageant in June. The girls were enthralled as she sang and played a guitar to “This Country Life” and “A Cowboy” from her recently released album. The girls enjoyed fancy Shirley Temples (provided by the Eagles) and supper fit for royalty before they were escorted in the Grand March. Julie Grove, Pageant Director, said “she was so excited to see all the beautiful, happy girls from around the area.” She continued, ” We didn’t know what to expect when we decided to put on this fundraiser for the first time. We are so happy to hear good things around the community and hope to do this event again next year.”

The money raised will help cover the two $500 scholarships given out each year by the sponsor of the event The Miss Rugby Scholarship Pageant Committee.
