Princesses and pirates invade Langley as part of Make A Wish fundraiser

It was a princess and pirate party in Langley, all for a good cause.

Close to 230 people — the majority of them in princesses and pirate costumes — attended the fifth annual Princess and Pirate Tea Party on July 10 at Langley’s Cascades Casino Convention Centre.

The party was hosted by BC and Yukon chapter of the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and raised $14,000.

Money raised helps the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada continue its mission of granting wishes to children living with high-risk life-threatening illnesses.

Children’s Wish Foundation has granted nearly 25,000 wishes to young Canadians since they were founded in 1984.

Last February, Langley’s Nevon Coburn was the recipient of a wish from the foundation.
