Posted in Donate Car Wyoming News, Friday, October 17, 2014

The Stories of Light Gala is a wonderful way to help celebrate the wishes that Make-A-Wish Wyoming has granted already while raising money to grant even more wishes in the future. This Nov. 8, from 6-10 p.m., come out to the Best Western Ramkota in Casper for the celebration.

The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a wine tasting and hors d’oeuvres. Afterward, enjoy a gourmet dinner and exciting live auction. The highlight of the evening will be the opportunity to hear the stories of local Wish Kids so you can experience the power of a wish first-hand. You won’t want to miss this inspiring evening! Plus, all of the gala’s proceeds go to Make-A-Wish Wyoming to bring hope, strength and joy to more children facing life-threatening medical conditions in Wyoming. 

Reserve Your Spot Today

November is coming up quickly, so you won’t want to miss out on your chance to attend the Stories of Light Gala. Make your reservation today by emailing makeawish@wyoming.wish.org.

Your Attendance Will Help Grant Wishes

The Stories of Light Gala is a great way to help raise money for Make-A-Wish Wyoming so that they can continue to grant wishes for deserving children all across the state. Each year, around 30 wishes are granted in Wyoming. These wishes bring increased hope, strength and joy to children when they need it the most. Battling a life-threatening medical condition is something no child or their family should have to experience, but luckily Make-A-Wish provides these children with something to look forward to during a difficult time.

According to a 2011 Wish Impact Study, 89 percent of doctors and healthcare providers believe that the wish experience can improve a child’s physical health. Parents and doctors alike often say that a wish coming true is a positive turning point in a child’s battle for health. The Wish Impact Study also found that a granted wish can make children and their families feel happier, returning their feelings of normalcy. In fact, 96 percent of parents report that the wish experience has helped to strengthen their families.

Results like these show that wishes are truly wonderful things, and you can help make them happen with your support!
