“Half a heart, but twice as brave!” That’s what Annabelle’s parents have held onto as a motto for hope. Have you heard Annabelle’s story? Epic Shine did, and we were inspired to help change a 7-year-old girl’s life by making her wish come true. Annabelle’s story is an amazing one, filled with hope and triumph. Annabelle has a congenital cardiac condition and has endured three open heart surgeries, but that hasn’t stopped her for being a true wonder in everyone’s lives around her. Her wish is to visit Disney World with her family, Epic Shine and the Make-A-Wish foundation partnered to make the wish come true. Our goal was to raise $5,000 to make the dream come true.
On September 15th, we held a big event at our brand new Ten Mile location, in partnership with 104.3 WOW FM to raise the money. We were blown away by the response from our community! There’s nothing more powerful to see than a community that comes together to help one of its members. In total, $7,000 was raised! Well above our goal, but not our expectations of our community. Thank you for making a wish come true!
