The Wish is a magical story about two young fairies, Audrey and Vivienne, who live in a colorful village. Audrey does not speak with words yet, and Vivienne is kind and includes Audrey in all that she does. They are surprised by a fairy godmother that grants them three wishes, and what they do with these wishes will warm your heart and spread joy and kindness to all who read this book.
With the purchase of admission, each party will receive one (1) autographed hardcover copy of The Wish ($25 value). All proceeds from this event will benefit the following organizations:
