EVANSVILLE, IN -- You've probably heard of the Make-a-Wish Foundation. But there is a more localized group granting wishes for hundreds of children around the region. It's called Granted and is based in Evansville, Indiana.
The group serves children in a 100 mile radius of Evansville, which includes parts of southern Illinois. Granted is looking for more families to serve, as well as volunteers, sponsors and donors.
On Saturday, April 15 there is a fundraiser called Dishes for Wishes. It's from 7 until 11 p.m. at the Ivy Room in Evansville. Bakeries, breweries and wineries in the Evansville area will be there serving up food and beverages.
If you want to learn more about the program you can go to the Granted website or call (812) 425-9474.
