Everyone Needs a Wish
Tulare County has many wonderful non-profit organizations. One you might not be familiar with is Wish Upon A Star.
It's based in Visalia, but grants wishes to children (ages 3-18) living in California with high-risk and life threatening illnesses. These wishes are heart-warming and give children hope. Wishes range from meeting celebrities to something as simple as a bedroom makeover (this makes a big difference to children who can't venture out in public until they are well).
These wishes are funded by donations. Your chance to help is coming up Saturday, Sept. 25, at the Visalia Airport. Wish will host its Boot Scootin' BBQ. Tickets are $40 before Friday, Sept. 10; $50 after. Information: 733-7753 or visit www.wishuponastar.org.
