There will also be an impressive silent and live auction, inspiring program featuring local wish children & much more!

We need the help of MANY volunteers the day of the event to assist our light company in getting all their equipment to and from their trucks. This is not hard or heavy work, it just requires a lot of walking and pushing carts. We need volunteers from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. as well as from 8 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.

Your support will help us reach our important goal of granting a life-affirming wish for every medically qualified child!  We are currently on pace to grant at least 380 wishes this year – more than a wish a day! The gift of a wish has a profound impact on the children we serve and their families.  For many, their wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illness!
