Dishes For Wishes

April 26, 2021 - May 2, 2021

Join us for our sixth annual event combining delicious foods with granting Wishes.  This year’s event needed to be modified for the safety of all, so we are taking it back to it’s roots, and featuring all of the sweetness that our community holds.

Through the partnerships with a number of amazing bakeries, bakers, and restaurants, this week-long event will allow ticket holders to visit each venue to sample their delicious goods one time throughout the week for free! Hours and restrictions for each location will be noted on your ticket.

While you are there, you may want to purchase some additional goodies to take home! A few generous participants are organizing Give Back events in conjunction with this week, so you can support Granted in a number of ways, and also support a small local business.

A full packet of information that includes your ticket will be mailed to you prior to the event.  Below is a listing of all  participants this year, and what they will be offering.

We truly appreciate your support! Most everything has been shut down due to the pandemic, but the need for our services is at an all-time high. So far in 2021, we have received more Wish requests than 2020 and 2019 combined!

Dishes For Wishes


Join us for an exciting evening of sampling the area’s finest sweets, savory, and spirits.  Meet our Wish
children, dance, bid on amazing auction items, win prizes, and be a part of making Wishes come true!

A Wish gives children time away from hospitals and treatments.  It gives children and their families
something to plan and look forward to through times of uncertainty and emotional as well as financial
strain.  Wishes allow the family to put the burden of their child’s illness on hold as they have fun and
create everlasting memories.

Tickets are $40 in advance, and $50 at the door.  Tables of eight can be reserved for $400.

For Sponsorship or ticket information, call (812) 425-9474 or email
