Waffles and Wishes 2018

On April 25, 2018, the fifth annual Waffles & Wishes was held once again at the Ambassador & Banquet Conference Center in Erie, PA. This year, eight-year-old Gianna was revealed with her wish-come-true to have a swimming pool!

You see, Gianna loves to swim. She especially loves animals that swim, too -- animals like ducks. So, her favorite fuzzy friends joined us to surprise Gianna with a pool of their own. Check out the video below:

 

 
With the help of our attendees and sponsors, this year's event raised just over $39,000 — all for local kids facing critical illnesses.

Extra special thanks to our title sponsors, Plastek, Erie PA and UPMC Health Plan, for making this year's event such a success.
