Wishful Drinking: One Simple Wish Turns a Night Out into Wishes Come True

One Simple Wish (“OSW”), the nonprofit that aims to empower everyone with the ability to brighten the lives of foster children and vulnerable families is hosting a series of Happy Hour-style events throughout March and April to raise funds and awareness for their 4000 mile wish granting tour this May.


The events known as “Wishful Drinking” are free to attend and will feature drink specials, giveaways, raffle prizes and lots more. They are being held at various venues throughout Mercer County.  To date the following events have been scheduled:

 

Tues, March 13: Trenton Social - Trenton, NJ
Tues, March 20: Firkin Tavern - Ewing, NJ
Thurs, March 22: Salt Creek Grille - Princeton, NJ
Thurs, April 19: Salt Creek Grille - Princeton, NJ

Please note that all events begin at either 6:30 or 7pm and more details can be found at www.onesimplewish.org/events.

The events will all support One Simple Wish’s upcoming 30 Wishes 30 Cities 30 Days tour. In support of National Foster Care Awareness Month, One Simple Wish leaves NJ on May 1 to embark on a 4,000 mile journey to grant 30 wishes to foster children in 30 cities around the country in 30 days. In each city, the OSW crew will visit organizations that impact foster children and highlight ways for everyone to get involved in supporting kids in care.

 

“America’s foster children - young victims of abuse and neglect - need a louder, stronger voice to demand improvements in our child welfare system. One Simple Wish is going to highlight the programs and the people making positive change and we’ll be giving everyone simple ways that they can get involved too - all over the country,” says Danielle Gletow, Founder and Executive Director of One Simple Wish.
