Princess for a Day is the inspiration of local Winnipeg woman, Stella Mazza, who after experiencing her battle with Breast Cancer in 2004, was motivated to create an unforgettable experience for little girls struggling with a life threatening illness.
“A profound realization occurred after watching my 3 year old dancing in a princess ball gown I had purchased for her. I suddenly imagined countless little girls whom are battling life threatening illnesses, enjoying a moment like this. Upon recovering to a healthier state after a year of chemotherapy, surgeries, and radiation, my desire was to generate much joy back into our lives. The idea of creating an event for these young girls to experience a transformation into a princess, especially those living through a difficult time, was my top priority for the year. After conveying my desire to execute Princess for a Day to director of Children’s Wish, Maria Toscano, and receiving her approval, the inaugural took place October 9, 2005. Today Princess for a Day continues to be a highlight of the year for my family and for many little girls.”
Princess for a Day is a Volunteer based event with 100% of proceeds supporting programs and initiatives set forth and carried out by Mazza Daydreamer Kids on behalf of Children Charities throughout Manitoba
