Murray… Come and enjoy the most enchanting evening in Utah! The Distinguished Young Women of Utah host their annual Princess Tea Party on Wednesday, February 20, at Make-A-Wish® Utah to honor young girls who are struggling with life-threatening medical conditions.
A scholarship program designed to highlight and honor young women in the state, The Distinguished Young Women of Utah hold the Princess Tea Party at MAWU’s A Wishing Place every year because of the desire to involve their young women in the community. The group maintains a strong relationship with Make-A-Wish Utah because many of their volunteers also serve as MAWU ambassadors and wish granters.
Additionally, the Distinguished Young Women of Utah has been raising money for MAWU through an external event. The group will present their donation to Make-A-Wish Utah on the evening of the Princess Tea Party.
When the princesses arrive, they will be greeted by a red carpet and trumpets as their name is announced. Once inside A Wishing Place, they will be “crowned” with a medallion from the winner of the Distinguished Young Women of Utah, Kaitlin Paxton. Music, dancing and food will help make it a night to remember.
