Monongalia and Preston

Make-A-Wish Foundation host fundraiser and helps kids wishes come true one wish at a time.

Thursday night’s fundraiser kicked off with a celebration Crab Shack Caribba on Cheat Lake. A girl of Harrison County, Michelle James, of Hepizbah received her wish to be able to go to Hawaii to experience the culture, see a volcano in person and attend a genuine Hawaiian Luau. James was diagnosed with and battled leukemia and now gets to celebrate recovery with her family in Hawaii.
 
“When a wish comes true its very powerful and it doesn’t just affect the wish child it actually affects everyone in the family; mom and dad, brother and sister, grandma, grandpa, the dog walker, anybody and everybody. So anyone who comes in contact with a wish child definitely knows and hears about the stories, and its that smile on that child’s face that tells the story itself,” said Jackie Auten, Make-A-Wish Northern West Virginia Regional Director.  

Make-A-Wish also hosted its ‘An Evening in Paradise’ Hawaii teamed party featuring live music, delicious food, and prized-packed auctions helping raise money for Make-A-Wish foundation.
