Evening of Wishes was an Evening of Success!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our inaugural Evening of Wishes on Saturday, October 13, 2012, at the Crowne Plaza in Warwick, Rhode Island. The event was a true success, raising over $250,000 to help fulfill the wishes of Rhode Island children facing life-threatening medical conditions.
We were honored and grateful to welcome wish child Lindsey, who inspired our guests through her vocal performance, and wish mom Heather, who shared her family’s meaningful Make-A-Wish experience as she reflected on her daughter Jenna’s wish granting.
We offer particular gratitude to our Wish Sponsors: Bill and Doris Loehning, Drew Lawton and Jill Royster, The Hardiman Family, Embrace Home Loans, Euro-Pro, and Century Drywall; and sincere thanks to our Hope Sponsors: Arlen Corporation, Textron, Swarovski North America, Gilbane Building Company, and Fidelity Investments. We also extend our congratulations to event co-chairs, Bill and Doris Loehning, and the entire Evening of Wishes committee.
Without the support of so many businesses and individuals, this wonderful event would not have been possible. The funds raised through Evening of Wishes will bring hope, strength, and joy to many wish children and their families in Rhode Island!
