Wishes & Dishes

September 24 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Local Make-A-Wish families unite Bend area chefs to help grant future wishes through first ever Wishes & Dishes event.

On September 24th, local foodies and philanthropists will gather for an evening of small bites and beverage pairings at the beautiful Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, with all proceeds fulfilling life-changing wishes of local children facing critical illnesses. There will also be an online auction with some exciting packages to explore!

This incredible event is organized by local wish families who want others to experience the transformative power a wish. Wish Ambassador Grant regained a piece of his childhood during a trip to the Walt Disney World® Resort. Wish Mom Sarah said, “The pure, indescribable joy that our entire family experienced throughout this trip is not one we will ever forget.”

Wish Brother Rob, now an adult with his own family, says he still remembers his brother Phil’s wish to meet the Ninja Turtles coming true. Phil is a leukemia survivor, and Rob says they still talk about the wish to this day. “It is now only as a father of two young boys that I can being to grasp how much this gift was needed for my brother and parents,” said Rob.

When you support Make-A-Wish, you give children strength, bring families closer together and unite community in a common cause. We invite you to join us to grant even more wishes and we can’t wait to celebrate with you!
