Help Layla’s Wish Come True

On Sunday July 10th, The Children’s Wish Foundation is hosting the 5th Annual Princess and Pirates Tea Party, right here in the Lower Mainland!

The Princess & Pirates Tea Party raises funds for wish granting and is also an opportunity for children to welcome a little magic into their lives and let their creativity run wild! It includes a magical afternoon of high tea and treats, as well as a variety of activities and entertainment aimed at bringing the imaginations of young princesses, pirates, kings, and queens to life with an unforgettable, enchanting experience.

It will be taking place at the Cascades Casino Convention Centre Resort in Langley from 11:30am to 2pm.

Elsie and I were super excited when we heard of this event, and she’s already picked out her outfit (spoiler alert: she’ll be going as Elsa from Frozen). Tickets  are $25 each, and children under the age of three get in for free! We thought about inviting Linden and Daddy along but we might just make it a girls date.


This year’s event will be raising funds for this little cutie, Langley local, Layla. Layla is a kind-hearted and brave young girl who loves dancing, exploring, and having fun with her older sisters. She was born with Down syndrome and various birth defects that required multiple surgeries at a young age. When she was only 20 months old, she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and was only able to see her sisters once or twice a month.

Layla is now a healthy and strong five year old and is nearing three years in remission. Now that her health will allow it, Layla’s wish is to travel to Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawaii with her family.

Tickets for the Princess and Pirate Tea Party and more info on the event can be found on their website: www.childrenswish.ca/princessteaparty. The Children’s Wish Foundation, Elsie and I hope you’ll join us for an adorable afternoon of everything princess and pirate to celebrate the joy of wish granting.

Would you like to attend this incredible event?

I’m running a draw prize from now until July 1st and the winner will receive this prize package (vauled at over $200):

Participation is super easy! Simply post a picture of your favourite princess or pirate (costume not required, adults welcome too) on social media. If you’d rather not post a picture you can also share this post to enter, or do both for extra entries!

Tag me, @elsinosis on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, and The Children’s Wish Foundation, @ChildrensWishBC on Facebook and Instagram, @cwfbc on Twitter, in your posts. This step is very important otherwise I won’t know that you’ve shared a picture or this post (note on Facebook your post needs to be public for me to see it).

From today until Friday July 1st every post and tag will count as an entry into the draw. The winner will be announced on Monday July 4th and then we can party together at the Princess Tea Party!

Thank you so much, in advance, to everyone who helps to spread the word and raise some money for Layla and The Children’s Wish Foundation ❤
