Lafayette, LA-This year will mark the first many as Make-A-Wish® begins an annual partnership with the Krewe of Rio. Our wish child Kamryn, Lafayette native, and her family will be participating in the parade and serving as our wish ambassadors. As wish ambassadors, Kamryn and her family will help spread the word about our mission as well as share with the community about our Check What Matterssm program. This program informs the public that they can now Check What Matterssm by donating a portion, or all, of their income tax refund to our foundation. All of these funds will help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions right here in our Louisiana community.
Kamryn's hero is God because he created all people. Make-A-Wish® is important to Kamryn because it gave her the opportunity to go to Disney World with her family for the first time, which made her very happy.
It is a true honor to be able to partner with the Krewe of Rio, and we look forward to working with them to make more wishes come true! For more information please contact Jackie Heroman, Make-A-Wish Staff, Development Coordinator, at 504-846-9474 ext. 203.
