We spoke to the owner of carpe diem on why they partnered this year with the make a wish foundation.

Alan Bolson | Carpe Diem owner

“They do a great job helping the individuals in our area with needs and each year we try to select a different charitable organization to partner with.”

Kalishia Mitchell | Regional Development Director: Make a Wish

“Make a wish we really need volunteers within this area to help us grant wishes to children. we have about 300 children on the waiting list so they’re still waiting for wishes so events like to help us reach our goal is a wonderful opportunity.”
