The Most Fantastic Party I didn’t Attend, but wish I had

Medical Guardian (1818 Market Street  Suite 1200, Philadelphia, PA 19103) held their annual holiday party earlier this month at VIE in Philadelphia. Geoff Gross, Founder & CEO at Medical Guardian hosted friends, family and employees of the life saving Medical Alert System which serves seniors nationwide. I was supposed to attend, but something came up and I missed it. After attending in the past and knowing that Valerie Sings GrossVal Sings Events was producing the event, I knew it’d be a party we all needed to see

Happy Happy Holidays, what a wonderful holiday season. I for one am not bothered when the commericals, and the music and the holiday cheer starts in November because when December 26 rolls around I’m already nostalgic for it.

Photos: A Dream is a Wish: Princess Holiday Concert
I didn’t know what to expect when I attended the A Dream is a Wish: Princess Holiday Concert Hosted by Philadelphia Theatre Company at the Suzanne Roberts Theater.

Dream
What I found was the most adorable concert with princess’ who had a lesson to teach little princess’ in training. Every seat was sold out at the concert, but not every seat was taken as the little princess’ clamored to be as close as possible to the stage.

Dream
A Dream Is a Wish: Princess Holiday Concert is a live concert sing-along, featuring nine Princesses including Princess Sofia, Cinderella, Elsa, Mulan, Moana, Belle, and others. Cinderella is having a holiday celebration with her friends and the youngest, Princess Sofia, wants to learn from the other Princesses how to be the best she can be as she grows up! They teach her that even though life will present obstacles, everyone’s path is different, and if she is true to herself, she will find her way. A Dream Is a Wish features over 15 holiday and popular movie-musical songs, including the titular song, “A Dream Is A Wish,” “Let It Go,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Jingle Bells,” “Winter Wonderland,” and “When Will My Life Begin.”


Afterwards there was a meet and greet with the princesses in the lobby of the theater.
in between photo ops, princesses enjoyed delicious cider and cookies as well
smiles and
memories
I loved seeing all the princesses in their various gowns and tiaras
