Pat has been a Wish Granter for the Connecticut chapter of Make-A-Wish for a few years now, and it has been very rewarding to see the smiles on the faces of all the children whose wishes have been granted. We are, therefore, pleased to once again help raise money for this amazing organization by participating in their annual Walk for Wishes event, scheduled to be held on May 11, 2013.
The Walk for Wishes is a non-competitive walk through Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut. Enjoy food and fun for the entire family, entertainment and a memorable evening of making wishes come true. A registration fee of $10 per person (kids 3 and under, Wish Kids, Wish Parents and Wish Siblings are free) includes entrance to the zoo, event t-shirt, parking and access to a private Post Event Wish Celebration at the zoo.
Here is the event schedule for the day:
Registration: 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Walk for Wishes and Fitness Challenge: 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Party featuring a DJ, kids entertainment, carousel rides, prize drawing and food: 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
