‘Princess tea’ held as Red Deer church fundraiser

Knox Presbyterian Church event is on April 27

Cinderella, Snow White and other Disney heroines will help host a Princess Tea at Red Deer’s Knox Presbyterian Church on Saturday.

The fundraising event will feature teenage dancers from Innisfail’s Joy’s School of Dance wearing tiaras and fancy dress costumes to depict 15 Disney characters, including Mary Poppins, Tinkerbell, Moana, Alice in Wonderland, Ariel, Jamine, Pokahontas, and Frozen’s Elsa and Anna.

These “princesses” will dance, chat with, and serve tea to dozens of young (and not-so-young) fans from 1:30 to 4 p.m. at the church at 4718 Ross St.

Proceeds from the $20 tickets will go towards church operations and the Sunday School, says event organizer Margaret Krill.

Her daughter, Tatiana Jones, previously played Rapunzel at a successful Princess Tea presented as a dance benefit to help finance a trip to Disneyland. Feedback from kids and parents about that charitable tea was so wonderful, Krill thought “we have to do this again!” as a church fundraiser.

Participants will feast on dainties, take home craft projects, and are encouraged to dress up for the occasion.

More information about tickets is available from the church at 403-346-4560, or Krill at 403-848-4660.
