3/8 Annual Princess Ball to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis
On March 14th, the Stettler Community Hall will be filled with royalty! The Stettler Princess Ball is being hosted for the sixth straight year by Cystic Fibrosis Canada - Central Alberta Chapter. Your little ones are encouraged to wear their finest princess attire and will be greeted at the door by some of their favourite Disney princesses. The event holds activities such as face painting, crafts, and a dessert and candy table. There will be professional photography to capture a great portrait of your regally dressed family. Parents can spend their time enjoying snacks and a silent auction.
The Princess Ball, which originally started in Red Deer, was brought to Stettler by Keri Snowden, Linda Haner, Renaye Pickett, and Kirsten Roth back in 2014, after Keri’s niece was diagnosed. “The community has been so supportive with sponsoring and donating amazing prizes to our auction,” says Roth.
The money raised goes to life-saving research that has improved medication, treatment, and diagnosis in patients living with CF. Recent research has increased life expectancy for CF patients and has allowed for earlier diagnosis in babies and young children, allowing them to live happier and more full lives.
While the event’s success is due to the dedication of the team and multiple volunteers, Roth says that the community is key in prolonged success. “The town has been loving the family-friendly event to create happy memories for them and their children. I think it gives us all a reason to smile, support the cause and dress up while having a good time.”
