A Letter from The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of East Tennessee
by (listed at end)
Dear Cumberland County Playhouse:
On behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of East Tennessee I would like to thank you for supporting the Waltz for Wishes Gala held April 28, 2012. Through your help, the gala will net over $155,000! This amount will help to ensure that we are able to fulfill the wishes of our extraordinary wish children in the year ahead.
Through your help, we provide suffering children and their families with a much-needed respite that is filled with hope, strength, and joy. We have discovered that a child’s wish often uplifts their spirit giving them the inspiration to enjoy a bright and promising future.
Please know that we are so appreciative of your generosity and thoughtfulness. It is because of your commitment to these children that we are able to bring moments of wonder, magic, and laughter to so many families in need. The impact of a wish on the entire family seems to take precedence over the condition, from conception to well after fulfillment. They are able to forget about the illness that has dominated their lives and focus on the joy that comes from a granted wish. A wish is a wonderful experience for a child with a life-threatening illness and their family, but it also enriches the lives of those who help make this dream come true.
Together, we can aspire to achieve our ultimate vision – to provide empowering, spirit-lifted experiences for every eligible child in East Tennessee.
