The goal for the event was to raise $30,000 so the wish for a local child can be granted.

“It is fulfilling whenever you get to see the kiddo fulfill their wish and all of the pain is washed away,” event Coordinator Emily Reading said. “It makes the sacrifice, the hours of the festival planning worth it when you get to see that wish come true.”

The hope of the event is to grant three wishes with money raised.
