  • Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario has planned the ultimate girls' day for Fatima


October 26, 2016, OTTAWA –  In many ways Fatima is like any 16-year-old girl. She loves to draw, take photos, shop, and watch movies.

However, Fatima is struggling with a life-threatening lung condition, making it difficult for her to travel - something Fatima would very much like to do.

Since Fatima is not able to visit Walt Disney World® Resort, which is her childhood dream, Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario has teamed up with local partners including Broadway Across Canada, Fairmont Château Laurier, Dominique Levesque Bridal, the York Street Spa and Best Buy to offer her the ultimate day of princess pampering right here in her hometown.

On October 27th, Fatima will be treated like royalty. Fatima will begin her princess makeover at York Street Spa where she will be primped and pampered. Next, she will be styled in a custom-made dress from Dominique Levesque Bridal to ensure she is dressed for the ball. When ready with final touches, Fatima will be served a special dinner prepared by Creative Kosher Catering which she will enjoy in her own Presidential Suite hosted by Fairmont Château Laurier. She will end the magical evening in the suite where she will also enjoy a girl's overnight stay with her mom and sister.

In true royal style, Cundel Stables horses shall bring Fatima to the National Arts Centre where she and her family will attend RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA, the 2013 Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical direct from the Queen's Box.

Broadway Across Canada has ensured that Fatima will receive VIP access from beginning to end, watching Tatyana Lubov transform into Ella, the show's principal role, before the performance and ending with a full cast photo on the stage.

Thanks to the kindness of the partner organizations, we are thrilled to grant Fatima's wish, the ultimate princess experience, without leaving Ottawa.

Make-A-Wish® would like to thank these organizations for their in-kind contributions to Fatima's wish experience:

Broadway Across Canada

Fairmont Château Laurier

Dominique Levesque Bridal

The York Street Spa
