Princesses last year at the popular tea event in Langley.


he Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada - BC & Yukon Chapter, is thrilled to present the 3rd Annual Princess & Pirates Tea Party on June 14th at the Coast Hotel & Convention Centre Langley.


The event invites families to enjoy an afternoon of high tea, tasty treats, and a variety of activities & entertainment, including a royal spa.  This event is a perennial favorite amongst Children’s Wish supporters of all ages. Traditionally aimed at young princesses and their families, this year will feature an emphasis on the pirate-y side of things to entertain little princes. Among the guests of honor will be the Princess & Pirates Tea Party’s new swashbuckling mascot: Cap’n Andy.


Children’s Wish is partnering with generous donors who are working together to ensure all will have a swashbuckling good time! Local Langley business Everything but the Groom has generously sponsored a family to attend the event. By sponsoring the event, companies will play an important role in creating the magic of a wish for children living with high-risk life-threatening illnesses and their families. Sponsorships start at as little as $250.


“The Princess & Pirates Tea Party is one of our favourite fundraisers. Not only does it bring in the funds we need to continue to grant wishes, but it is just such a wonderful day. I love seeing all the little ones in their princess tiaras and pirate hats!” explained Jennifer Petersen, Director of the BC & Yukon chapter of Children’s Wish.


Join us for an adorable afternoon of everything princess and pirate to celebrate the magic of wishes.
