Editor’s Note:

ModestoView loves to support the Make-A-Wish foundation. A team was at the Sacramento Make-a-Wish walk recently on August 13th 2016, to walk in memory of Maria Jo Mitchell, who’s wish came true only 3 months before she passed. Make-A-Wish sent her to New York to watch her beloved Yankees play a game in 1989. She got to meet the team and get an autographed ball, thanks to this amazing organization.

Last year, we were honored to witness a local young lady, Amariyanna “Mars” Anderson, have her wish come true at the Vintage Faire Mall. Kay Jewelers awarded her a necklace of her choice for her prom. You can read the story here. 

We hope you will also support Make-A-Wish in any capacity that you are able. Thank you!
