A Princess Party last August raised a total of $10,200 for the White Rock Firefighters Charity Association. The event, organized by Myra Merkal, featured Alyssa Nielsen in full princess garb and also included a contribution from Al Hippsley, who donated an auction item he’d purchased at the Sources gala last spring.

That item – the opportunity to be a firefighter for a day – raised about $600. Merkal, Nielsen and Hippsley presented White Rock firefighters with a cheque earlier this month.
