The Silent Auction, a benefit Make-A-Wish Kansas
Make-A-Wish® Kansas granted its first wish in January 1985, when 10-year-old Rhonda from Hiawatha, KS wished to ride a horse in an Arizona parade with her former neighbor. This one child’s delight in having her wish fulfilled provided the inspiration for the Kansas chapter to continue its mission.
Make-A-Wish Kansas serves 99 out of 105 counties in the state of Kansas.
