Ladies and girls of every age (and of course men brave enough to tag along!) are invited to Divas’ Day Out, a day of fun and pampering for a good cause in Fernandina Beach’s Atlantic Rec Center Auditorium September 17, 2016.
The event features 30+ vendors, on-stage entertainment and fun for kids all day long, including free tennis lessons, a dress up zone, free hairstyling and glitter tattoos, face painting, a diva photo booth and more. See the full list of vendors, kids’ offerings and events here.
We’re so excited to tell you about this event, hosted by Mamamelia.com, which will benefit Girl Power 2 Cure. This Amelia Island-based nonprofit is hunting down a cure for Rett Syndrome, a debilitating neurological disorder that strikes in young girls and stays with them for life. It is a sad condition, but there is hope! It is the first neurological disorder ever proven to be reversible. Girl Power 2 Cure is beloved all over the country for bringing a positive message of hope to this dark disorder. Check out their video at the bottom of the page, which shows people all over the country helping them battle Rett.
To help raise funds for this worthy cause, we’re getting together to enjoy a wildly fun day with demonstrations, dozens of vendors, and delicious refreshements! On stage, we’ll have a fashion show, fitness demos, women’s self defense and dancers, among others. Aerial dance – in which dancers hang from silks attached to the ceiling – is always a crowd-pleaser. And this year we’ll also have adults ballroom dancing and Rotal Amelia Dance Academy’s youth dancing.
Our vendors will offer merchandise in categories like fashion, jewelry, makeup, health, fitness, cooking and home goods. Take your kids to the diva dress up zone hosted by Royal Amelia Dance Academy, and then get a “Diva Portrait” by Boston Photography. Buy $5 jewelry at the Paparazzi Jewelry booth. Or, at the Origami Owl booth, you can make your own “living locket.” Get gourmet food – and cupcakes – at the concession stand run by Selph Expressions. Or paint a keepsake at the Paisley Grace Designs booth. Your $3 entry fee will go directly to Girl Power 2 Cure. And there will be tons of valuable items raffled off to benefit them too.
Of course we’ll have offerings for the little ones, too! We’re excited to see the littlest divas at the “Diva Dress Up station.” There will also be:
- Cliff Drysdale School of Tennis at Amelia Island Plantation’s free “Learn to Play Tennis” clinic
- Face painting
- and more!
