Founder – Wishes For Olivia, Event Chair – The Princess Ball:
Jennifer White

Jennifer is a mother, a wife, and an all around ordinary person that has found herself in an extraordinary time. Jennifer formed Wishes for Olivia in February 2013 following the sudden passing of her daughter Olivia, at the age of five and a half. As part of Olivia’s legacy, she strives to make wishes come true for children across Canada through fundraising on behalf of Make-A-Wish Foundation of Canada. The Princess Ball is an event very close to Jennifer’s heart as she knows how much Olivia would have enjoyed the dressing up, the tea, and of course, the Princesses, and she dedicates this event to her memory.
