Honor Roll: Princess for a day

Local News

Like most girls her age, 7-year-old Jordan West loves being a princess.

“I think every girl deserves to be a princes for a day,” says Jordan

After attending a princess party last year, Jordan decided that she wanted to help girls in foster care be princesses too.

After hosting foster girls for her first princess party, she hosted another one for more than 100 girls in Washington D.C. at the White House later that year.

“We had one kind of with the President and it was really cool,” says Jordan.

Now Jordan is looking to have the most magical princess party yet. She wants to take 15 foster girls and their foster moms to Disney World, for the ultimate princess party at Cinderella’s castle.

It’s a big goal for the West Family, who’ve made it a tradition to give back to those less fortunate. They need to raise about $15,000. They’ve partnered with many businesses in the community and will have a penny drive this Saturday.

“You don’t have to be big to do big things because people will rally behind your mission. The little deeds can have a big impact, says Olivia West, Jordan’s mom.

The ‘Pennies for Princesses’ event is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Canandaigua National Bank on Mount Hope.
