Real Estate Agent with Progressive Realty (Boise Idaho) www.Progressive-Realty.info DB-17066

If you are looking for something fun to do this Memorial Day near Boise, Idaho; consider going to Indian Creek Winery for Wish Granters, Inc.'s annual Wishes and Wine event!  https://www.wishgranters.org/wishes-and-wine/

Wish Granters, Inc., is a non-profit that grants terminal wishes to local adults.  Think of Make-A-Wish but for adults! I was the President of this organization in 2022 and will serve on their Board of Directors through 2024.

There will be five wineries sampling and selling their wines; food trucks; two bands; plus live and silent auctions too!  Check out the auctions here:  https://bakerauctioncharity.bidwrangler.com/ui/auctions/101043 You can create an account and start bidding now.  For our live auction, you can register online and contact me if you are not going to be there and have me bid by proxy up to your upper limit if you like!

To get a feel for our current and past wishes, check this out:  https://www.wishgranters.org/current-wishes/

Feel free to contact me about donating towards any of our current wishes in either cash or inkind donations.  The more we can get donated, the more wishes we can grant.  For example, time shares so we don't have to rent hotel rooms; hotel/airline points that we can redeem; gift cards / vouchers; experiences; etc. We do our best to create lasting positive memories for our recipients families and their primary caregivers.

Thanks to our sponsors this year:

Hi Jim... this does sound like a fun event... and what's better than fun that also supports a good cause?

It is a lot of fun.  The two bands are worth going to hear them.

Jim hope you get lots of participation, personally I find Memorial Day to be more somber than others.... maybe because of my background, Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. I can appreciate the somber tone on Memorial Day.  The fact that most of our recipients pass within six months of their terminal wish, it is for me too. However, making some of their last memories positive . . . makes it all worth while.

That definitely sounds fun to me, but unfortunately, I will be showing homes and helping my cousin move instead, haha.
