11 Year Old Girl Gets Disney Dream Come True 

Dartmouth, NS – Just like many other girls, 11 year old Gabrielle loves Disney. But unlike most girls, Gabrielle lives with cerebral palsy and uses a power wheelchair for mobility, and so trips of any kind can be challenging. Her dream is to go to Disney World with her family; Mom, Dad, and her brother Isaac, and to meet the Disney Princesses. Thanks to The Sunshine Foundation of Canada and their kind supporters, Gabrielle’s dream is coming true. She will be presented with her customized Sunshine Dream of a family trip to Walt Disney World® in Orlando, which includes a meal with some special Disney Princesses, at a public presentation on Saturday, April 9th, at 2:00pm at the WINNERS/HomeSense store on Mic Mac Blvd in Dartmouth, NS.

Sunshine has fulfilled dreams for more than 8,000 kids across Canada since 1987. Each Sunshine Child is officially presented with their unique personal Sunshine Dream at either a private or public Dream Presentation, a celebration for the Sunshine Child, his or her family, friends and community. Gabrielle’s family has chosen to celebrate her Dream Presentation publicly at their local WINNERS and HomeSense store. WINNERS and HomeSense stores have been a national partner to The Sunshine Foundation of Canada since 1999. Since beginning their relationship WINNERS and HomeSense have helped raise $8.6 million dollars to fulfill the most cherished dreams of Canadian children living with severe physical disabilities or life threatening illnesses from coast to coast.

“WINNERS and HomeSense are honoured to partner with The Sunshine Foundation to help raise both awareness and funds for a fantastic cause,” explains Erin O’Brien, WINNERS and HomeSense spokesperson.
