Make a Wish Foundation Comes to Delaware!

From: Golder Holly

Have you ever wished to have your name displayed in Cab Calloway’s lobby? Now you can!  During school tomorrow, the Interact club will be having a fundraiser for Make a Wish. They will be selling Make a Wish stars that will be on display in the lobby for $1 during lunch and activity period.

Delaware was just awarded its own chapter and  through its foundation they grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. A money raised in Delaware, stays in Delaware.
