On Saturday night [June 8] fathers and their daughters enjoyed a special night out, as the first ever “Princess for a Day” father and daughter dinner was held at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess.
The event was hosted by Kings & Queens Production, with the concept behind the evening to strengthen father/daughter relationships and to honour fathers who are doing their part.
Guest speakers for the evening were Miss Bermuda Rochelle Minors, Miss Teen Bermuda Zaire Bean, Senator Diallo Rabain and Digicel CEO Wayne Caines whose daughter Maxii joined him in making an address.
The common theme of the speakers was the importance of a strong relationship between father and daughter and encouragement to strengthen those bonds every day.
The MC for the evening was Bermudian comedian Bootsie, and upon arrival each young lady was presented with a tiara. Entertainment throughout the evening included Dennis Fox on keyboards and Nadanja Bailey.
Daughters learned a little more about their fathers when they took part in the “How well do you know your father?” game. Questions asked included what primary school did your father attend, his favorite colour, favourite song and many others.
MC Bootsie asked random questions in an elimination process that saw Miss Bermuda Rochelle Minors and her father Marshall Minors win the game.
The evening was hailed a success by many who attended as the night came to a close with a “Soul Train’ style line dance. Fathers and daughters each received gifts at the end of the night with some men being honored with plaques for their outstanding roles as fathers.
