The first event in our 3-Part Wish Dish series was a huge success!  We had a great turnout for our live class with Colin Asuncion where he showed us how to make a delicious Mixed Berry Shortcake.

The class included an interview with wish kid, Olivia, who taught us how to do her signature more the Livi #DoTheLivi.  We raised $1,580 for our Make-A-Wish cause!

Thank you so much to all our wonderful donors and attendees, we couldn’t have made this event a success without your continued support.

Part 2 in our Wish Dish series is coming up fast – it will take place via Zoom (link to be shared shortly) on July 29, 2020 at 7:30pm.  This one is for the party lovers!  This event is a virtual cocktail and mocktail making class hosted by BartenderOne.
