Fancy Nancy Adventure

The Del Mar Foundation, in partnership with the Friends of
the Del Mar Library, welcomed Fancy Nancy illustrator Robin Preiss
Glasser to the Del Mar Powerhouse for a splendiferous Fancy Nancy
Adventure on Sunday, April 28, 2013. The event included a special
presentation by the illustrator, fun activities including a parade
around Powerhouse Park, a tiara craft courtesy of the Del Mar
branch of the San Diego County Library and fancy hairdos donated
by the stylists of Pigtails & Crewcuts in Flower Hill Mall. Over 300 children, parents and
grandparents participated. 

The grand finale of the afternoon was a party on the terrace
at the Del Mar Plaza where families were able to have their Fancy
Nancy books autographed by Robin Preiss Glasser, enjoy ice
cream, lemonade and cookies, and make bracelets for the
group Beads of Courage, Inc. a nonprofit organization helping
children being treated for serious illnesses.
