UPDATE: Event helps Make-A-Wish families

Posted:
ROTHSCHILD (WAOW) -

Families helped by the Make-A-Wish Foundation had the chance to say thank you at an event in Rothschild.

The event is called WishStock. It brings Make-A-Wish families together for a night full of live music, raffles, games and prizes.

Organizers say the event also raises money so organizers can help make more wishes come true.

"It's amazing what a wish does for not only the child, but the family as a whole," said Patty Cieslewicc. "For them to be able to see our participation in helping to make those wishes come true, as volunteers, or events like this really brings a lot of smiles to their faces."

This is the second year the event was held.

Organizers say they raised $6,255 dollars. That's almost doubled than last year.

Newsline 9's own Emily Neubauer helped emcee the event.
