SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Calling all Lords and Ladies with nimble hands and kind hearts.

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament in Scottsdale is scouring the Valley for volunteers to help them put together more than 1,000 masks.

"We believe in sharing kindness in everything we do," said Queen Isabella from the Scottsdale arena.

They want to donate them to the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community and to United Food Bank once completed.

"They come pre-cut, and you can get a bag of 50 and sew them together," the Queen said. 'We're calling all royal tailors of the realm to help us out."

Mindy Brito and her family have been big fans of the feast and live show, featuring sword fighting and a jousting tournament.

"It's good for all ages," Brito said. "We cheer and scream and yell. The kids love watching and they're always like, 'What's going to happen!? What's going to happen?!' The baby sits there... and watches the entire thing!"

When Brito is not cheering on the Blue Knight with her husband and two children, she is stitching for those in need.

"Since COVID, I never really sewed before," Brito explained. "So, since COVID, I've... taken up sewing, and I've had fun doing it. I love it."

She has put together about 100 masks so far and hopes anyone who can, will pitch in for this royal favor.

"It's for a good cause," Brito said. "So I would say, why not?"
