Wishes Matter to Benefit Make-A-Wish® Middle Tennessee on August 26

Brentwood, Tenn. (July 28, 2017) – Wishes Matter, a fundraising event to benefit Make-A-Wish® Middle Tennessee will be held at the Tucker’s Gap Event Center in Lebanon, TN, on August 26, 2017.

Tickets to the event include a cocktail hour, dinner, entertainment from Rubik’s Groove, a popular ’80s and ’90s cover band. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet a former wish family and hear about the power of a wish.

“Time and time again, I have seen the excitement and impact a wish makes on these children and their families,” said event chairperson Merissa Newton, a 14 year volunteer wish-granter with Make-A-Wish. “I want to help build awareness for Make-A-Wish and help people realize they are granting wishes in our local communities, in our neighborhoods.”

Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee serves 38 counties in Middle Tennessee and grants approximately 130 wishes annually.  The organization does not receive government funds and relies on donations from corporations, foundations, schools and individuals to help fulfill wishes and bring hope, strength and joy to children suffering from life-threatening medical conditions.
