We are the Royal Princesses and Knights, a fun loving group of high energy, caring individuals who work hard to give back to the community. We are a non-profit, charity organization that was founded in 1992 by two forward-thinking women. These women had a dream to give back to the community, so they formed a club and named it the Royal Princesses. One founding member has since passed away and the remaining founder is Princess Billie Carter.
Their plan was to give various fund raisers and use the proceeds to give scholarships to needy students in the community and also fund other charitable organizations like CCS, a shelter for battered and abused women. Men were brought into the club in 1994 and the club was organized as a 501(c)3 non-profit California corporation and the name of the club became the Royal Princesses and Knights (RP&Ks).
There are currently 10 members. Robert Carter is President and has held this position for the past 25 years. His vision has been to have the organization grow, both in image and the scholarship awards given each year.
Currently, the organization gives three fund raisers a year. One is a very classy, Black & White New Year’s Eve Ball. The second fund raiser is an all day, fun filled trip to Rosarito, Mexico, carrying bus loads of high energy party animals, and third, an authentic Mardi Gras Party with umbrellas and a second line dance. People come from far and near to participate in these events and the numbers continue to grow every year.
The Royal Princesses and Knights credit their many successes to their loyal and faithful supporters who frequent the fund raisers every year and the hard work and unselfishness of members past and present.
