WISH MAN SETS RECORD ATTENDANCE
#Repost – 940 enthusiastic people attended Wish Man. The film tells Frank Shankwitz’ story of how he overcame personal difficulties, and went on to co-found Make A Wish Foundation which has helped hundreds of thousands of children around the world fighting critical illnesses.
The evening concluded with a Q&A with Frank and his wife Kitty, where they both emphasized that we can each make a difference. Many in the audience had either directly been impacted, or had a friend or acquaintance who had been impacted by Make a Wish. This includes Prescottonian Megan Tisdale who came on stage to share her story of being granted a wish, which gave her the strength to keep fighting her illness. Megan is now a Freshman at Yavapai College where she is receiving a YC Promise Scholarship.
