Raffle Benefitting Make-A-Wish

Last year we partnered with Make-A-Wish to help grant our friend Alex’s wish! Alex is a brave boy here in Gwinnett County who is battling a brain tumor. Throughout his cancer treatment, he and his family watched countless hours of Harry Potter. It’s during those special moments that Alex fell in love with the characters and stories. ⁣Alex wished to have a Hagrid Hut with all things Harry Potter incorporated! Thank you to everyone who donated during THEYPARTY! With your generous support, we were able to give Make-A-Wish Georgia $3,626 to help make Alex’s wish a reality!

Now with the help of a community of wish granters and partners like Gwinnett Young Professionals, Alex can now explore new worlds and create wizardly memories. His mom said, “this wish is going to let Alex really feel his independence. It’s a space to call his own and be proud of.”
