(PASADENA, CA)— Scheduled to attend over 150 public and media functions, the Tournament of Roses Queen and Rose Princesses took time to enjoy afternoon tea and crafts with young girls living at Hillsides, a Pasadena foster care children’s charity. The royal court introduced themselves to the young girls.
“I think it’s really emotional knowing that young kids have to live in a different place without their parents,” said Rose Queen Evanne Elizabeth Friedmann. “I’m excited, though, to be here and share this experience with these girls.”
After savoring an assortment of desserts accompanied by tea and lemonade, the Rose Queen and her court assisted the girls in creating various bracelets, accented with rose buds, ladybugs, crystals and beads to commemorate their time together.
“Evident by the smiles on their faces, Hillsides’ girls were delighted to be in the presence of the Queen and her court,” said Laura Kelso, the charity’s director of community resources.
The 2011 Rose Queen and Princesses include: Rose Queen Evanne Elizabeth Friedmann, 17, La Canada High School and Princess's Tatyane Anaid Berrios, 17, Arcadia High School; Sarah Christine Fredrickson, 17, Maranatha High School; Jessica Michelle Montoya, 17, Flintridge Preparatory School; Tenaya Miyoko Senzaki, 17, Pasadena High School; Kathryn Morris Thomson, 17, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy; Michelle Kaye Washington, 18, Pasadena City College.
The royal visit is a highlight for the vulnerable children living at Hillsides. Opportunities like these provide the girls insight into what can be accomplished when setting your mind to achieve certain goals.
“The Rose Queen and her Court are truly a remarkable example and role model for our young girls,” said Joe Costa, Hillsides chief executive officer. “Knowing that they have many events to attend prior to the Rose Parade, we are truly appreciative of their visit to our campus.”
Community opportunities, like the Rose Court visit, that engage Hillsides children in culturally enriching experiences are always sought out. The winter break is a time when the children’s charity encourages businesses and community organizations to sponsor an outing or underwrite an activity for the children. Founded 97 years ago, Hillsides is a Pasadena charity that creates safe places for children at risk and their families.
