Wish Upon A Star Dinner Dance

Wish kids and families attended the 22nd Annual Wish Upon A Star Dinner Dance at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn at Terraview on Friday, May 13, 2016. The evening included dinner, dancing, a cocktail hour and musical entertainment by DJ Mike Carmella, the Dick Halstead Trio with Judi Lincoln. The event also included wish kid guest speaker Alexa and her mother Denise, together they talked about how a wish has impacted their life and the importance of keeping hope alive. This year's gala event raised a grand total of $15,000.
