Today, Friday, March 1, will be the only day that Make-a-Wish will be in Mansfield, so don’t miss them!

They will be at Mansfield’s 71 Express, 504 Highway 71 S. from 3-5 p.m. Swing by, and enter to win a Grasshopper mower from the Mower Shop in Fort Smith. They are $1 per entry, and 100% of the donations go to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. A $20 donation will also get you a collectible Make-a-Wish t-shirt, sponsored by Crain Hyundai and Crain Kia.

With the help of others through donations, Make-A- Wish is able to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. In 2018, a wish was granted for Mansfield Elementary student Angel Mounts. –See related story.

Six years ago, another area child, Radley O’Neal, was granted his wish. “He’s a Make-a-Wish kid,” said his grandma Brenda Sweeten. He was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma. He is in remission and doing good. He likes to participate in Make a wish and encourages others to do so.”

KTCS 99.9 is putting on the event. The radiothon starts April 5. You can also donate online to kids who are waiting on wishes to be granted in the River Valley.
