Once Upon A Story Yet To Be Told: Jaime’s Night
Once upon a time, there was a princess so dear
She didn’t rule countries, she ruled hearts far and near
Her story had barely been told and so it was time.
Volunteers helped to make it her night to shine
A princess should only be honored in a castle-like place
with vaulted ceilings and lighting, we found such a space
Hosted by 60 State in the city of Albany Friday night
Jaime found some time in the lime light.
Honorary members of the court spoke and welcomed the guests
John Robinson was there, simply the best of the best
Beauticians from the north, the south, the east and the west answered the call
while backstage looked like angles preparing for the ball.
Jaime, awaited her moment while music played
A purple dress just for her, a beautiful princess she made
The runway opened with gorgeous dresses all around
Made from our own queen of fashion at Bride and Gown
Chic outfits and accessories galore
Local artisans like Britta produced scarves for the show
Redemptive Institute Dancers pranced lightly, some right up on their toe
Flowers shimmered the runway and made the Men’s Wearhouse tuxes look fine
Bouquets and carnation from Fantasy Floral Design
The music of the night set the mood all around
Thanks to the wonderful efforts of Saratoga Sound
Nothing more could a better night make
except for extra bite from a Piece of Cake cupcake
So through donations and love this story was told
In a way that made athletes with disabilities a little more bold.
We thank you if you came and did your part
We thank you for donations you made from your heart
if you still are inclined to made help this princess so dear

We had number of talented artists put their work on display at the Miracle Fashion Show. We LOVED seeing what they come up. Our theme for the year is finding beauty in dark places and they were given the free lance option of doing their own interpretation of that theme. We will be announcing winners this week as well!
