Children’s Holiday Party brings out the smiles!

For the past five years, Paradise Developments has provided the funding and support to enable The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation to put on a Holiday Party for the children who are being been cared for in The Princess Margaret’s Magic Castle.  The Magic Castle is a free child-care service that is used by parents while they are at doctors’ appointments at the cancer centre or receiving cancer treatment.  Children who are cancer patients and receiving radiation treatment at The Princess Margaret were welcomed at the party as well. 

This year, 50 children in all enjoyed this party where Santa dropped in and delivered a wonderful gift to each and every one of them.  The party was held in The Princess Margaret’s 7th floor atrium where the children had lots of room to dance to the music, decorate their faces and cookies and enjoy fun craft activities.

The services of the Magic Castle are provided free of charge thanks to generous donors who understand the need for this kind of family support service.  One mother said at the party that it has been a hard year for her daughter and she hasn’t seen her this happy in a while.

Paradise Developments is a family-run company that has been creating award-winning homes in the GTA since 1971.  They give back to communities in many ways, and we’re grateful for their generosity that has put smiles on the faces of children who may be a little anxious as they head into the holidays.
