Cinderella Ball tickets for 2018 now on sale; SPD encouraging fathers, daughters to make memories during Cinderella Ball

(Seguin) -- Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The Seguin Police Department is requesting the presence of local princesses and their kings to its annual Cinderella Ball. Tickets are now on sale for the 9th annual royal affair scheduled for Friday, June 22 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Seguin Coliseum.

DARE Officer Hope Vasquez says the magic behind the night continues to grow as more and more fathers and father figures and special young ladies join them for the event.

"This event is mainly for fathers and daughters. I know that fathers are really busy with their sons with baseball. I'm sure with their daughters too as well but this is a special night that we have created for fathers to spend one night with their special princess or princesses because I'm sure there are some fathers with more than one and it's a time for him to sit down with his daughters privately in a comfortable and elegant setting and for them to talk to about what are their favorite colors, their friends, dance the night away, eat, take a photo and take a carriage ride," said Vasquez.

Vasquez says the relationship between any father and daughter is already special. That's why she says this particular event is designed for any girl, lady or woman wishing to spend some time with their king.

"Princesses are all ages. It is not just for little girls. If you have a father, father figure, this is magical day that I would suggest for you to take the opportunity and bring your dad or have your dad bring you to the ball -- dance, share the night, make some memorable memories, take photos -- there's also a boutique. You can go shopping, have valet parking, you walk the red carpet and get that experience and be treated like the princess that you really are," said Vasquez.

Vasquez says last year the event was sold out making it even more important for people to purchase their tickets as soon as possible. She says to help make it even more convenient, the committee has launched an online ticket system making it possible for people to get their tickets 24/7.

"This year, we went totally online. Every ticket you can think of from carriage ride to valet and to the ball -- everything is online. The new thing also is that you choose the table you want to sit at instead of us sitting you at a table. So, all tickets are sold online and they are going pretty quick. They are using this as a Father's Day gift as well. There's a few more tables left so I would encourage everybody to purchase them early. Carriage rides for the VIP pumpkin has been sold out and we only have the shared rides which are $10 a person. Again, I encourage you to get those early because once we sell out, we can't sell anymore at the door for carriage rides," said Vasquez.

In addition to kings and princesses, Vasquez is also hoping to attract even more volunteers to help with the event. She says the Cinderella Ball is truly a community effort.

"We have volunteer opportunities that they can help out as well. We have some openings for carriage rides and for the food committee that is need of volunteers and that could be any age or any sex -- anybody who would like to help. I also want to thank everybody who has contributed to this event. We have our food committee that is doing a wonderful job by having all those sponsors return again and help out with this event. Without them, all this would not be possible and so we would like to send an early thanks to them because 100 percent of the proceeds go straight to the DARE Program which also helps out with Halloween, Blue Santa and DARE graduation -- all these other events that the police department host," said Vasquez.

Tickets are $35 for kings and $10 for each princess and includes dinner, hand wristlets and a photo.

Those wishing to volunteer are encouraged to email Officer Vasquez at To purchase tickets visit
