If you had the chance to make one child’s wish come true, what would it be? What if you could make thousands of children’s wishes come true? Since 1984, Indiana Children’s Wish Fund has been doing just that.
To help celebrate 35 Years of wish granting, Indiana Children’s Wish Fund. along with event sponsor Imavex, are hosting The Wish Fund Birthday Bash on Sunday, July 14 at Pinheads in Fishers (13825 Britton Park Road) from 3 to 6 p.m. Hundreds of Wish kids and their families will be treated to the private event and an afternoon of bowling, arcade games, music, pizza and birthday cake.
“The Birthday Bash will be a magical day for our brave Wish kids and their families,” says J’Lynn Cooper, Director of Wish Fund Operations. “To see the smiles on their faces is incredible. We also want to give a huge shoutout to our sponsors — Imavex and Pinheads. This day would not be possible without their generosity.”
