The show kicked off on Saturday and what a wonderful, magical night it was!!!!
Hayley (last year's wish recipient) and her wonderful family were here to kick off the show! She turned on the lights and was even interviewed by Channel 8 news! We are so blessed to have come to know such an amazing family.
We were so surprised that channel 8 and channel 13 news showed up, it was so cool! It really helps to get the word out, so that hopefully we can grant another wish this year. We also found out from one of the on-lookers that we were in the Journal Tribune...we had no idea! This morning someone told us we were on 94.9 FM!!!
Saturday we were also visited by a HUGE stretch limo with a bunch of really fun ladies who were celebrating a birthday. People came up from as far as Massachusetts and we even had a surprise visit from my sister and my nieces from Rhode Island! It is so fun to see everyone and we are continually overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of our community.
Sunday was pretty busy too. I wish that everyone could see the children's faces who come to visit...it makes it all worth-while. I love that their faces light up and they will dance and sing for all to hear. The joy they get from lights and a candy cane puts a smile on our faces and in our hearts.
We want to send out a HUGE "thank you" to our amazing and supportive neighbors....we truly could not do this without you and your support. Thank you for putting up with us :)
Just a reminder....
Sunday - Thursday 5 - 9 pm.
Friday and Saturday 5 - 10 p.m.
