The Royal Dames’ Creed

We will work and never tire until there's a cure for cancer, that is our utmost desire.

Each of our lives have been touched by the dreaded Cancer wrath. So we'll willingly give of our time and wealth until a cure is within our grasp. As we focus all of our efforts toward our one and only goal, our dedication to fighting cancer is the Royal Dames ultimate role. We pray for God's divine guidance, Dames keep searching to find an everlasting cure for Cancer to benefit all mankind.

A Regal Parade: The Ocala Royal Dames Tiara Ball 2016

By Ronald W. Wetherington
Saturday evening, The Ocala Royal Dames presented “Majesty: An Evening at the Royal Palaces at their 30th commemorative Tiara Ball. Seven debutantes were presented to Ocala’s high society as well as honoring a Royal Knight, Dr. Scott Antonia. Founder Theresa Castro originally inspired ladies 30 years ago to raise funds to further cancer research. Since those halcyon early days, almost $3 million has been devoted to cancer research. Co-chairs Norma Chicklo and Nikki Siyufy, and the entire Tiara Ball Committee merit the highest of praise for their endeavors. Additionally, President Connie Brown and 1st Vice President Corinne De Vault made this glorious evening most memorable. For more complete coverage, see my Social Scene column in an issue of Ocala Style Magazine.
