The Princess Ball Celebrates Bravery in Support of Make-A-Wish Canada

Over 500 Princes and Princesses to Gather for the Family-Friendly Charity Gala in Memory of a Little Girl Who Was Gone Too Soon

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - April 12, 2016) - Wishes for Olivia will host its annual Princess Ball, a family-friendly charity gala, at The Old Mill on Sunday, April 17, to raise money for Make-A-Wish Canada. The event is in memory of Olivia Grace White, who died suddenly at the age of 5, and who, at such a young age, always wanted to share all of the magic that the world had to offer.

Hosted by Stu Jeffries, the event will be full of activities such as archery, a birds of prey demonstration, hair adornment, highland dancing, and, of course, princesses.

Inspired by the movie Brave, this year's theme is meant to empower kids to dream big and to be kind. Wishes for Olivia hopes to make a few dreams come true, even if only for one magical day.
