Northborough – Mothers and daughters had the chance to play princess for an afternoon while raising money to support schools.

On May 18, the Northborough Education Foundation hosted its first “Mother/Daughter Tea Party” at the Algonquin Regional High School. The tea party, which organizers hope will become an annual event, attracted about 50 girls and 50 adults, including mothers, grandmothers, aunts and friends.

“This was our first time bringing an event like this to Northborough and it was a huge success,” one of the organizers, Marile Borden, said. “We were able to raise nearly $3,000 to help support our schools, while also creating a special event for local girls that we hope to be able to bring back year after year.”

According to Borden, the girls made crafts, danced and sang with Disney princesses “Cinderella” and “Belle,” had their nails painted, posed for commemorative photographs, and entered to win raffle items donated by local businesses.
