Briana Defresnes-Lemay of Chilliwack celebrated her birthday last month at the third annual Children’s Wish Princess Tea Party in Langley, where scores of young princesses and princes delighted in tea, goodies, a scavenger hunt and surprise appearance by Princess Elsa from the Disney movie Frozen. At eight years old, Briana has already been through two open heart surgeries, but last year had the chance to forget about the recovery still ahead and escape to Disneyland with the Children’s Wish Foundation. Proceeds from the event, held at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre at Cascades Casino, went to the foundation to benefit local kids with life-threatening illnesses.  - Alyssa O’DELL/Langley Times
