RENO — Make-A-Wish Northern Nevada will host the annual Waffles & Wishes event from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on March 27 at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa. All funds raised at the breakfast event helps the chapter to grant wishes in northern Nevada.
The event will include a silent auction, as well as an appearance by honorary wish granter and Nevada first lady Kathleen Sandoval, as she helps grant a “movie-star makeover” wish for an 8-year-old girl with severe Aplastic Anemia who recently underwent a bone marrow transplant and is in the healing process.
It is only through community sponsors that the chapter is able to grant wishes to local children with life-threatening medical conditions. Waffles & Wishes 2012 is sponsored by the Atlantis, KNPB, Dermody Properties and Digiprint. Tables are filling up quickly and only 50 are available. Anyone interested in attending this year’s event can call 826-8008 or visit http://northernnevada.wish.org.
