NEW SPRINGVILLE, Staten Island (WABC) — Kids got to share a cup of tea with the characters from ‘Beauty and the Beast’ on Staten Island.

The party was hosted in celebration of Mercedes Gleason’s 4th birthday.

Gleason is a pediatric cancer patient and an ambassador for the ‘Help Cure Childhood Cancer’ campaign.

Beauty and the Beast is Gleason’s favorite movie. On Saturday, Stop & Shop hosted the party – open to the public – at their store in New Springville.

Along with the tea party, kids decorated their own crowns, got their faces painted, and enjoyed pictures with Belle and the Beast.
