Make a Wish Foundation – Our local branch is working hard to make wishes come true for critically ill children in our area. When a wish comes true it helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses. For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say the wish experience works in concert with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically. That is why wishes matter. That is why we want to help Make a Wish grant wishes.
December 7th , First Friday PHlocking – 7 PM Emerald Club . Let’s start off the
Christmas Season by having some fun and doing something for those who will have no home
for Christmas. At this month’s PHlocking we will be dressing in RED or GREEN just to warm
up to the whole season. If you don’t wear either color, you may be GRINCHED. Want to
know what happens if you get GRINCHED? Not telling! Matt will have DJ Robbie and free
food. If you have not signed up for the Santa Crawl yet, you can register at the PHlocking for
$10. If you wish to register the day of the event (the next day 12/8/18) you will pay $15.

This year for our Christmas Charity, we will be asking members to donate to Family Promise
of Carteret County. We had intended to donate our parade float winnings (are we
presumptive) of First Place ($250) to this organization. Please read the information on the
families assisted this year by this faith based organization that is at the end of this
newsletter. The needs are great and the hurricane resulted in more families in need of help
finding homes. Several of the churches that house families at night (Family Promise has only
office/day space) were damaged and for a bit, homeless families were housed in the day space.
