Little Miss Pink Petals dance with fathers at Princess Tea Party

ST. PETERSBURG – The ladies of Zeta Upsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. held its Little Miss Pink Petals “Tiaras and Tutus Princess Tea Party” last Sunday, Sept. 11 at the Garden Club of St. Petersburg.

Nearly 100 guests were in attendance for the occasion. Dressed in sparkling tiaras and pink tutus, pageant participants made a grand entrance as they were accompanied into the room by little gentleman escorts.

The Princess Tea Party is part of a series of pageant activities that span a period of 12 weeks and targets young girls 5-10 years of age. The goal is to positively develop young girls in the community and give them confidence and skills to achieve academic excellence.

During the program, attendees enjoyed entertainment and a pink and green candy bar buffet. Guest speaker for the occasion was Alpha Kappa Alpha member Evyan Gordon, who shared a heartfelt message about the strength of families in creating a positive roadmap for children to follow.

Other program highlights included an interpretive dance by Jordon Moore and a poem recited by Mykenzie Davis-Cowart. The 2013 Little Miss Pink Petals winner, Denia Averette, also welcomed the new participants and shared her positive experience as a previous winner.

The affair concluded with fathers dancing and twirling their little princesses with the music “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder playing in the background.

The pageant will culminate at 6 p.m. Oct. 22 at Lakewood High School Auditorium, 1400 54 Ave. S. Admission to the event is $10. Proceeds will benefit the chapter’s charitable and local community donations.
