Rachel’s Royal Tea Party, April 21, 2024

On April 21st, DC Candlelighter’s hosted the annual Rachel’s Royal Tea Party in honor of Co-President Meg Crossett’s daughter at the Virginia Run Community Center. A huge thank you goes out for the use of their facility. Eleven children including girls and boys in treatment, their siblings, and parents were treated to a fancy Tea Party with sandwiches, fruit, and sweets.

The kids enjoyed crafts with Crown and Straw-Hat decorating, and Lego Knight and Castle making. The afternoon culminated with a beautiful “Princess” fashion show, with the girls modeling dozens of dresses and dance costumes with help from teen volunteers from CVHS Wildcats vs. Cancer and too much applause and delight from parents.

Jitka D’Ambrosia with Moment of Grace provided baskets of beauty products which were raffled for the moms and dads. Rebecca Thompson, also with Moment of Grace, provided healing crystals. Miss Teen Virginia, Reagan Bischoff, graced us with her presence and gave all the girls their own sparkly crowns. An elegant and relaxing time was had by all!
