Children’s Wish, enchanted evening.

Last night I attended the annual Market Square Fashion/Food event in support of the Children’s Wish Foundation.  The goal of the evening is to highlight the businesses in Market Square and to raise enough money to grant one wish (a total of $10 000-$12 000).

I had never attended this event before, and I must say that I was impressed!  The evening started with appetizers and desserts provided by the restaurants of Market Square (Boilerworks, Ale House, Grannan’s, Holly’s Cafe SOHA, The Hilton, Candy Bouquet, Cougars) and two large cakes celebrating the 25th anniversary of the organisation.  From scallops & crab/spinach dip to a chocolate fountain, there was plenty to dazzle the tastebuds.

Following the buffet stations, we were entertained by a guitarist and the Breen Sisters (they performed their song from Elle’s Bathroom Concert Series) before a fabulous fashion show with the latest styles from Stylin Mama, Baby & Tot, Samuel & Co., Walsh Luggage, Simply Cottage and House of Tara.  The highlight of the fashion show was a toss up between the great rain wear and the little Emmy who modeled for Stylin’ Mama.. she danced and charmed the crowd every time she stepped out on the stage.

Also included in the ticket price ($30), everyone received 2 glasses of wine and a glass of champagne to toast the anniversary.  There was also a chance to win a white gold and diamond ring, as well as prize tags attached to the champagne flutes.  I won a little girls dress, now I need to find a little girl to put in it!

The evening was also very touching, it was dedicated to a former wish child who passed away and at the end of the evening a 12 year old girl was granted her wish of taking her family to Disney World.

 A great event, I will attend again for sure!
