Make-A-Wish

For 4 year old Teagan, a pair of pink cowgirl boots and a hat were just the beginning of an adventure which undoubtedly will stick with her for the rest of her life. Teagan is just one of 163,000+ kids with a life threatening medical condition, who have had their wish granted by the amazing generosity of the Make-A-Wish organization and all of its individual supporters since it began in 1980.

Last Sunday we witnessed just how amazing of a community we live in, as the CT chapter of Make-A-Wish honored Teagan and her family at the the Make-A-Wish Gala at Foxwoods, after returning from her trip to a dude ranch in Arizona. The silent and live auctions and other donations raised over $90,000 for future wishes! We were so blessed to be part of this event and witness the beauty of people who really care about the joy that they can bring to others.

A special thanks goes out to Tara Navara and her awesome team who did a fantastic job putting the event together and the amazing Shyla who came down from Boston to help us out. Here are a few images from the night:

Wow, you guys are awesome. It is so hard to stomach some of the make a wish stories I've heard, and there aren't any easy ones either. As a parent, I can appreciate the efforts of those involved. You must be proud to be a part of something that genuine:)
