All princesses were in attendance at the Royal Princess Ball held on Jan. 18 at the Viscount Gort Hotel. According to Gillian MacDonald, president of Royal Princess Ball Committee, the playful event raised just shy of $25,000 dollars for the Child’s Protection Centre — a department of the Children’s Hospital Foundation that assists children suffering from abuse.

“This was the first year of the ball but it’s going to be an annual event now,” MacDonald said.
With over 300 guests in attendance, 125 of which were children, the ball was a great success. The fundraiser, presented by Happily Ever After Parties (formerly known as Winnipeg Princess Parties) and other sponsors, showcased 20 of the most beloved, make-believe characters, such as Frozen’s Queen Elsa, of “Let it Go” infamy.

The crowns, castles and fancy attire brought a child’s dream world to life and mimicked that of a real-life fairy tale.The dinner was following by dessert, dancing and live entertainment. Exhale Dance Studio took the stage and two auction winners took home a dinner date with
Cinderella and Prince Charming. The money raised through the event is expected to be presented in mid-February.
