Harding students who are Women for Harding Scholarship recipients will portray 30 different characters at this year’s event. The popular “House of Hair” will once again add to the fun for princess and superhero guests by providing accessories, hairstyles and makeup.

“The Women for Harding Scholarship recipients who portray the princess and superhero characters absolutely love bringing these characters to life for children in our community,” said Heather Kemper, event and project director for alumni and parent relations. “The joy is contagious during the event. It’s a magical morning you don’t want to miss!”

“Each year we strive to enhance the Princess Superhero experience for our guests,” said Kemper. “This year we are excited to announce the additional option of our VIP Character Breakfast where guests have the opportunity for exclusive one-on-one interaction with their favorite characters while enjoying a delicious kid-friendly breakfast buffet.”
