Dear Friends and Family,
Make-A-Wish can only grant wishes if we all help.
I’m talking to you Buffalo!
I am thrilled to join forces with Make-A-Wish Western New York as a “Wish Star!” It gives me so much joy to be able to help spread the word and raise funds for wishes this holiday season.
My amazing teammate is nine-year-old Nya, whose wish to go to Atlantis with her family was granted two years ago. Nya knows first-hand how important wishes are and she and I are ready to have some fun and raise lots of money for other children.
I am kicking off my Wish Star pledge with a fun (and competitive!) fundraising battle against Rochester-area journalist, Ashley Doerzbacher from 13WHAM ABC. Buffalo friends, help me represent the Queen City in winning this “Battle of Champions,” and better yet, raise money to make more wishes come true this year!
From December 1 through January 6, 2017, I’m asking you to follow the battle on my social media pages and to please, please support my fundraising by making a donation of any amount through this page. No donation is too small! The dollars raised through my efforts directly support the granting of Western New York wishes.
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Whether a child dreams to hula dance in Hawaii or meet their hero athlete, wishes are more than just a “nice thing to have.” They are an essential part of the healing process for the child, their family and our entire community.
I invite you, as the 'City of Good Neighbors,' to embark on this journey with me and follow me as we all make more wishes-come-true this holiday season. Thank you for supporting me! Let’s show everyone what the Buffalo community can do when we unite for an incredible cause!
Thank you in advance for your support!
