Peninsula princesses helped raise more than $10,000 for charity this weekend.
White Rock’s second annual Princess Party brought out 187-plus little girls who enjoyed a day of magic and miracles.
Girls between the ages of two and 11 dressed in their best princess gowns, wore tiaras and delighted in face-painting, magic-wand making and crown creating.
About three dozen volunteers helped out at Saturday’s event at Star of the Sea Hall, with local merchants contributing more than 50 raffle prizes.
“I held the vision to raise $10,000, and we did it – $10,200, actually,” event organizer and local grandmother Myra Merkal said.
“It was fabulous to achieve, but we have a long way to go.”
All money raised go to the White Rock Firefighters Charity Association’s efforts to create a destination park that will be accessible to people with disabilities and can be utilized by children and adults alike.
