Design-A-Wish 5K Benefits Make-A-Wish Mid-South

The Design-A-Wish 5K benefits Make-A-Wish Mid-South and IIDA TN Chapter. On June 3rd, 2016 the Memphis City Center granted our eleventh wish to wish kid, Gayatri. Gayatri’s wish reveal took place at the Peabody Hotel where she was honorary Duckmaster for the world famous Peabody Duck March. Then, she got a behind-the-scenes tour of the bakery/pastry department and a hands-on experience to see and help make a chocolate duck with the chef. At that time, Gayatri’s wish of a touch screen laptop was revealed! She also received some of her other favorite things like books, a cross-body bag, and a gift certificate for dinner at her favorite restaurant. This amazing evening ended with meeting Cinderella and her fairy Godmother for a horse-drawn carriage ride fit for a princess! The next Design-A-Wish 5K is July 16th, 2016. Register, volunteer, or sponsor to be a part of our next wish reveal!
