BURNABY, BC, March 8, 2012 /CNW/ - On Saturday March 10th, The Coast Hotel & Convention Centre in Langley will be transformed into a land of enchantment, for a Princess Tea Party in support of The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada. Princesses, princes and pirates of all ages will be entertained by royal musicians, dancers, fairies and more. Parents and children are encouraged to attend in princess, prince or pirate attire. Tickets to the events were available online for $25.00. The Princess Tea Party is part of Children's Wish Month, month long celebration of the magic of a wish to raise awareness and important funds to grant the most heartfelt wish of children with a life threatening illness.
Highlights of the Princess Tea Party include the Princess Parlour for royal makeovers from Feel Fabulous Mobile Spa, a High Tea that includes cupcakes from Frosting Cupcakery and amazing entertainment from members of Cirque Surrey. Also in attendance will be Miss BC Royalty and some very special Princesses.
Earlier this month, the Government of British Columbia officially declared March to be Children's Wish Month across the province, inaugurating a series of events and fundraisers aimed at helping The Children's Wish Foundation, B.C. and Yukon Chapter fulfill its mission to grant the most heartfelt wish of every child in the province living with a life threatening illness.

The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada
Each year, thousands of Canadian children between the ages of three and 17 are diagnosed with a life threatening illness. Since 1984, The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada has worked tirelessly to grant exceptional wishes to 18,000 children and their families.
This year, the Foundation expects to grant over 1,000 new wishes and is proud to have never refused a wish to an eligible child, and with the help of volunteers and generous donors, is able to grant nearly three wishes every day. Each wish is an individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of a particular child and family. The Foundation is a national charity with chapters in every province and territory.
