Have-A-Heart Wish-A-Thon raises over $402K for Make-A-Wish

Gloomy weather and cold temperatures didn’t stop Northeast Arkansas from coming together to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Mid-South chapter. After a 13-hour day, over $402,000 was raised to grant wishes for children right here in the area. All of this has been made possible by our wonderful sponsors, volunteers, and donors.

A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses. Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest kids you’ll ever know.  Their creativity is the driving force behind some incredible wish experiences.
