The event drew over 100 people, including family, friends and supporters of Wrist Wishes affiliates. Throughout the night, the raffle alone raised $1,000 and the bracelet sales totaled around $500, with proceeds going to the charity organizations. Some of the charities featured at the event were Bright Pink, Heartland Animal Shelter and Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
Bright Pink is an organization that focuses on early detection, prevention, and education for women who could be prone to ovarian and breast cancer. Heartland Animal Shelter is a no-kill animal shelter dedicated to finding good homes for homeless and loving pets. Lastly, Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure and eliminating all forms of cancer that affect children. Armed with brochures and smiles, all of the volunteers representing these organizations were excited to be out at the event!
Nicole Lacross, the founder of Wrist Wishes, said she was extremely pleased with the turnout at the premier event and said the best moment of the night was when her mother and father expressed how proud they were of her and her selfless giving. Nicole looks forward to planning more events for Wrist Wishes, raising awareness for these wonderful organizations, and having proceeds benefit their good work!
The night was full of laughs, an exciting raffle filled with amazing goodies and delicious sweets from Sweet Mandy B’s and White Chocolate Popcorn. The party continued at Bull & Bear, where a good time was had by all!
There are new partnerships with varied affiliates in the near future, so stay tuned for more information!
