Help Make A Wish Utah make dreams come true this weekend

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Utah) – Make-A-wish Utah helps make children’s dreams and wishes come true. This weekend you can help them do it.

Make-A-Wish Utah is holding its “Evening of Wishes.” The event raises money to grant wishes for roughly 165 children this year just like 7 year old Lauren Crane. She has a rare disorder, when she’s unconscious she might stop breathing and it could kill her at any time. She wanted to go to Walt Disney World and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and Make-A-Wish made it happen.

“I’ve already started doing spells lately,” Lauren Crane told ABC 4 Utah’s Brian Carlson.

“Already? What spells have you done?” Carlson asked.

“Oh a couple,” said Crane.

“Something that we love at Make-A-Wish is that we’re able to help foster their imagination, and really really make their dreams come true,” said Kelly Wolfe, Make-A-Wish Utah.

If you’d like to help, the Evening of Wishes fundraiser is this Saturday at the Grand America Hotel. Organizers said you can win some great items at the silent auction and help grant wishes at the same time. Good 4 Utah’s Brian Carlson will be emceeing the event.
