Wine and Wishes

Make A Wish
August, 25th

I have donated to Make A Wish for some time and was eager to see how I could get involved further as Mrs. Colorado.  Make A Wish grants wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions.   I receive the news letters and love reading about the granted wishes and how it effected their lives and sometimes even their treatments.
They invited me to attend their annual event "Wine and Wishes".  Held at the beautiful Cable Center on the DU Campus, guests were encouraged to bid on the many fabulous auction items, dine on delicacies, and meet some of the children who had enjoyed having wishes granted.

with Josh and his new puppy Venus. His wish for a furry companion was granted only a few weeks prior to the event.

I was put in charge of the wine wall.  We had 125 bottles of variously priced wines donated and individually wrapped and put on display for people to purchase.  My partner, Sofia and I  sold each and every one which helped grant 1/2 of a wish for a child.  It was a spectacular night that I was proud to be a part of.
