"I don't often get to see or spend quality time with my dad, so attending this year's Father's Day Princess Ball in Peterborough was the perfect event for us to go together. Not only did we feel great about supporting a wonderful cause but we also got to spend a whole evening of quality time together. The event, held at the Peterborough Curling club was a night filled with dancing, great food, entertainment and most importantly great conversation. We both enjoyed the magic show put on by Jason Chessar,and the DJ played a nice mix of music for all generations to enjoy. The decor was so tastefully done and truly set the mood for such an elegant event. The silent auction had a wide varity of prizes that appealed to all ages. My Dad especially enjoyed the candy buffet (which I told him was for the children) to which he replied "Amanda, I am a child at heart!" I thought it was so nice to have such an event that was targeted at men and "their princesses" to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer. My Dad and I are both looking forward to attending this event next year, and to once again have a night of quality father-daughter time together".
"I would like to thank the organizers of the Father's Day Princess Ball. It was truly a celebration of fatherhood and all of the wonderful princesses that make fatherhood so fulfilling. My six year-old daughter had an enchanted evening and is busy telling all of her friends about the candy buffet! What's more, it was a fantastic way to spread awareness of prostate cancer. Thanks for a special evening and see you next year."

"I would like to congratulate the organizers of the Father's Day Princess Ball for a job well done. My wife Marion and I enjoyed the evening from beginning to end. This black tie affair in support of Prostate Cancer Canada should be an annual event. Thanks again."
"It was an absolute honour and fun for my wife Pat and I to attend this magnificently conceived Ball. As a Prostate Cancer survivor and Past Chair of the local support group I appreciate the extent of the event's unique ability to raise both awareness of and financial support in confronting Prostate Cancer. We look forward to attending the 2011 Ball seriously intent upon improvement of our dancing skills especially the WALTZ - and this time in the company of our granddaughters."
"The Princess Day Ball was a memorable and truly enjoyable evening. We were particulary taken by the age range of guests and stories of personal reflection shared throughout the evening. My wife and I look forward to next year's Princess Day Ball and sharing another fine evening of food, conversation and entertainment.
