Dance Or Walk To Help Make-A-Wish North Texas In March

February 21, 2015

Whether you like an evening of watching celebrities dance or a morning out for a nice walk with friends, you can help Make-A-Wish North Texas in March, at either Waltzing for Wishes in Lubbock, or Walk For Wishes in Dallas. While wishes come in all shapes and sizes, the average cost of a wish is $8,000, which makes this event all so important to helping a child with a critical illness. Whether you are a sponsor or not, your support can provide a child in your community with hope for better times and the joy of experiencing the present.

Enjoy A Magical Evening While Helping To Grant Wishes

The 9th annual Waltzing for Wishes Gala on March 21 will feature local "celebrity dancers" who are matched with a professional dance partner. After weeks of dances lessons, each dancer will show off their talents and dazzle the audience with their grace and newfound skills.

For more information on becoming a sponsor, volunteering or attending, please contact Jordan Perry at 806-785-9474 or jperry@ntx.wish.org.

Walkers can register as teams, so if you have a group of family, friends or co-workers, you can form a team and start raising money today! There are team incentives as well as awards for the best team shirts, so make sure you get really creative.

When you Walk for Wishes, you will feel great about bringing joy and hope to a local child. Wish kids also attend and they will get so much joy from seeing how many caring, supportive people are there walking for them!

If you are unable to attend, you can still sponsor another walker, or make a general donation. For information on 2015 Walk For Wishes Sponsorship Opportunities, please contact Elise Christmas at echristmas@ntx.wish.org.
