"Bringing THEIR Dreams To Life!"
Mari has been a Director of Marketing and Special Events for over ten years, inclusive of celebration venues, gourmet restaurants and charity functions. As a Girl Scout Leader and mother of two young women, she coordinated several events for the Hamilton Township Community, including the inception of the annual Mother/Daughter Tea and Father/ Daughter Dance. Those experiences were the inspiration behind this endeavor to create memorable milestone events for a younger audience.
In 2011, Mari received a confirmed diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease. She has been both a patient and a trial member for pioneer studies with the Michael J Fox Foundation. It was during this transition, that she conceived the idea of promoting special events for little girls, and so was born "Little Angels Princess Events"-in honor of her own two daughters.
Mari's marketing background opened an opportunity to spearhead a committee to SAVE the Jersey Shore Children's Museum in 2012. The most recent Princess Event donated 100% of the proceeds, raising $2200 for the Museum's area children. Other local non profit organizations they have supported include: "Pass It On" for Homeless Families of South Jersey; "Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation"; "Spread The Magic" for Pediatric Illnesses; "Alex's Lemonade Stand"; "Make A Wish New Jersey"; "Bayada Pediatrics, "Room For Hope"; "Matthews' Miracle"; St. Katherine Drexel Church's Family Picnic and Brigantine's "Shark Park Committee".
In the past three years, business partners have included the Melting Pot in Atlantic City; Cities of Avalon, Sea Isle and Brigantine; Sea Isle Civic Center and Renault Winery. Annual events include Santa's Arrival, Breakfast with Santa, Brunch with Anna & Elsa and the Spring and Holiday Princess Teas. Pirate parties were added in 2015, with the partnership of Hamilton Mall and their Birthday Party Program.
Characters with 'Little Angels' are selected by their unique character traits, specific to the princess-or prince, they are portraying. They have an appreciation for fairy tales, an involvement in Performing Arts and a gift for working with children. Currently, the 20+ cast members are also drama students, or Theater Majors' capable of professionally portraying multiple "Disney-Inspired" characters.
We are very proud to introduce you to our Award Winning Little Angels 'Cast of Characters' and recipient of Hulafrog's 2015 "Most Loved Party Entertainers of South Jersey!"
