The Upward Steps Outreach Girls Ministry held its Second Annual Father-Daughter Princess Ball last Saturday (April 13) at the Davis Community Center in Orange Mound.

Rosemary Austin, Tammy Adolphus and Desiree Thomas run an after-school program via the ministry, focusing on girls from the 4th grade through high school. Brandi Burson, a 10th grade student a White Station High School, was crowned queen.

About 200 people attended the event, where the "princesses" were escorted by their fathers, brothers, uncles, friends and members of SKIN, a young men's group from Carver High School.
