Make a wish

Brattleboro: Each year Make-A-Wish Vermont grants approximately 37 wishes for Vermont kids with life threatening conditions. In Brattleboro every year an event is held to raise funds for and awareness of Make-A-Wish. All funds raised in Vermont are used to grant the wishes of Vermont kids and several wishes are granted every year in this area. This year, raffle tickets for a chance to win one of eight items, each valued at a minimum of $500, are on sale and the drawing will takes place Sept. 30 at the Brattleboro Country Club at An Evening of Wishes. A Wish family will be there to describe their wish trip and what Make-A-Wish has meant to them. To purchase tickets, visit
