Taste Spokane Fulfill a Dream

No child should live with the fear of death. No child should die with unfulfilled dreams. The Wishing Star foundation is one of the true heroes of this world, providing hope and fulfilling dreams to children who live with the impending threat and stress of terminal illness.  These young children live their lives with thoughts of doctor’s visits, tests, pain, and medication. The Wishing Star Foundation helps to fulfill dreams of vacations, room makeovers, trips to Disneyworld, Hollywood experiences, and meeting famous people. As individuals in Spokane (and across the internet) it may seem overwhelming for us to do our part. How can we help?

Taste Spokane is an event to support! For four hours on a Friday, you can enjoy Spokane wine, local food, and bid on fabulous auction items. Your $20 ($25 at the door) goes to help fund the wishes of these beautiful children.

Coordinator Taryn Erickson got involved with Wishing Star after a family friend, who was a “wish child” passed away. She watched the miracles first hand and was compelled to be involved. Spokane has 40+ active wishes including 21 year old Andrew who has a rare cancer of the bone. Andrew was diagnosed as a teenager and has given up school, college, job to fight this monster into remission. Your attendance can help fulfill his wish!

This year’s Taste Spokane includes a wider selection of food and wine vendors. Visit the web site (linked below) for a complete list.  Please join Wishing Star and DrinkNectar.com in support of helping fulfill these children’s whishes.

Event Details:

When: Friday, March 5 from 6-10 p.m.

Where: Northern Quest Casino (discounted room rates available)

Cost: $20 in advance and $25 at the door

    Thanks SO much for posting this great article sharing our awesome Taste Spokane event. I am the mother of the “wish child” Madisen mentioned by Taryn above. Wishing Star will forever be in our families hearts for granting Maddie’s wish. The family pic of our trip is the last one of us together and continues to bring a smile to our faces as we reflect on the fun we shared together and the incredible joy it brought to Maddie. We were blessed to have 2 1/2 more years w/ her after illness struck. Maddie became a ‘Wish Angel’ when she passed away at 12 yrs old. Thanks to Wishing Star for supporting wish children and their families now and forever in their “beyond a wish” program – once a wish family, always a wish family. Each one of our family is involved in one way or another in volunteering w/ Wishing Star. We hope you will come check out our Taste Spokane event and know that your hearts will be forever touched and changed. Hugs to all Kim Schafer
