The Annual Wish Invitational has raised over $300,000 in over 15 years of service. Last year, the Wish Invitational sponsored two wishes – Tierra’s wish for a college scholarship and Patrick’s wish to go to Alaska – and with the continued support from the local community the Annual Wish Invitational will continue to make countless wishes come true for Connecticut children when they need it most. Make-A-Wish Connecticut thanks Scott Johnston and all the event’s supporters from the bottom of their hearts!
About Make-A-Wish® Connecticut
The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Connecticut grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Wish-come-true experiences can do wonders by providing a much-needed break from lengthy hospital stays and medical treatments. They give back to a child what a serious medical condition can take away—the chance to simply enjoy being a kid. Wish kids choose something that will inspire happiness, and allow them to spend precious time with their families. The Connecticut chapter has made over 2,200 wishes come true since its inception in 1986.
