Fairy tale dreams come true at Shriners Hospital

The power of imagination made kids at Shriners Hospital smile as their fairy tale dreams came true in the hospital’s central activity area. The party fit for a princess – and prince – is named the Marti Mulford Princess Party in honor of the donor whose estate gift provided funding for the magical affair. Marti’s former husband and executor of her estate attended the party on her behalf and was gratified to witness the joyous occasion. The magical afternoon began as patients and families lined up to welcome Belle, Cinderella, Prince Charming, Tinker Bell and other favorite characters to the hospital play area. Girls waved their magic wands and donned tiaras and the boys wore crowns as they enjoyed a host of activities – face painting, a tea cup game, crafts, cookie decorating and so much more. Decorations reminded kids of some of their favorite characters as images from  Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and the Beasts, Aladdin, and Cinderella  brightened the play area turned into an enchanted forest.
