Make-A-Wish fundraiser: Witches, Wizards, & Wishes!

Vermont’s Make-A-Wish is partnering with the Vermont Teddy Bear factory in Shelburne for an upcoming fundraiser:, which will take place on October 27th: Witches, Wizards & Wishes.

The organization is working to raise $40,000, and they’re more than halfway to their goal now. Here’s the details:

Join us for Witches, Wizards & Wishes 2018 – a Make-A-Wish® fundraiser that celebrates the Vermont wishes that have already been granted, while raising funds for future wishes. It’s a family-friendly event powered by wish families, volunteers, donors and friends.

Visit us at the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory in Shelburne for a family-friendly, autumn festival! Register your team, invite friends and family, and take part in a 5K walk, Hyperfocus Art face-painting, Big Blue Trunk games, and many craft activity booths! The Dairy Center will cater lunch and DoughBro will have cider donuts! All attendees are welcome to participate in VT Teddy Bear Factory tours and costume contests. Well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome, and costumes are encouraged for them as well!

We ask all registrants coming to the event to raise a minimum of $100 to gain admittance. Attendees who do not raise the minimum amount will be charged $10 per person, in order to participate in all activities. We encourage all participants to fundraise for wishes!

By participating and fundraising, you help bring the life-changing impact of a wish to children in our community who are battling life-threatening medical conditions. A wish experience can truly change a child’s life, and you can help.

Encourage friends and family to support your team and help support Vermont’s Wish Kids! Prizes will be awarded to top fundraisers and the best costumes. Registration provides lunch, access to all activities and Vermont Teddy Bear Factory.

Tickets can be found here.
