Mom Lands Fairy Tale Job

Shore News Today:

In January, with her youngest child approaching a year old, Jennifer Auer figured it was time to get back to work.

She found the perfect opportunity through a friend of a friend — a Cape May County woman looking to sell her business, which uses costumed characters to bring alive make believe for children’s parties and special events.

Fitness Playhouse became Fairytale Entertainment, and Auer’s three sons, Nicholas, 5, Zachary, 3 and Matthew, now 15 months, became models for face painting — a favorite feature at Fairytale parties.

“The previous owner focused on females,” Auer said in an interview at her home office Sunday, Oct. 11. “I’ve introduced boys: Superman, Batman and Spider-Man.”

She said the business of arranging and hosting events was ideal for her.

“I had been doing special events since ’92, either as a volunteer or working full-time,” Auer said. “I worked lots of places, mostly nonprofits — setting up events, doing PR or managing volunteers.”
