Make wishes come true on April 24 with "Butterflies and Boots," the annual luncheon fundraiser benefiting “A Wish with Wings.”  Join Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, the honorary event chair, at the Renaissance Worthington Fort Worth Hotel, for a fun afternoon of delicious food, live and silent auctions and memorable tear-jerking moments. Eight “Wish Kids” and their own selected heroes will be presented on stage as their stories of hope and inspiration are shared with the audience. Individual tickets and sponsorships are available to attend this life-changing luncheon!

For more than 30 years, “A Wish with Wings” has been granting magical wishes for little Texans with life-threatening conditions to more than 1,200 children – including my son, Jackson. But it’s only through generous sponsors, organizations and countless volunteers, children with life-threating conditions, ages 3-18, are given the opportunity to make their dreams come true - from going to Disney World, meeting Taylor Swift or Texas Rangers’ John Cena or just having the chance to have a costume party.

Recently relocating from Arlington to Fort Worth, the organization is also excited to open their new doors of The Michelle Porche Hancock Wish House on April 3, from 4-7 p.m. for a special grand opening and dedication event.

To purchase tickets for “Butterflies and Boots” or to attend the dedication, please contact or call 817-469-9474. And to inquiry about volunteering or donating to A Wish with Wings, visit their website at
