Ultimately, they do whatever it takes to grant the wish of every eligible child – from meeting their idol, to go on a dream shopping spree, or even to become a ballerina.
Craftoberfest was hosted by Offit Kurman, PSA Insurance, The Canton Group, PNC Bank, and featured local craft beer and catering from Chef’s Expressions, The local craft breweries included Black Flag Brewing Company, Flying Dog, Jailbreak Brewing Company, Manor Hill Brewing, Peabody Heights Brewery, RavenBeer, Union Craft Brewing, and Waverly Brewing Company.

ABOUT MAKE-A-WISH® MID-ATLANTIC
Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic serves children who reside in central and southern Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland and northern Virginia. Founded in 1983, the Mid-Atlantic chapter has granted more than 8,800 wishes in the Mid-Atlantic region since its inception. Wish kids face any number of life-threatening medical conditions such as cancer, pediatric AIDS, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, kidney and heart disease. This year alone, 840 local children are expected to be diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. However, for every wish granted, at least two more local children are waiting. The community has the opportunity to make an impact today by helping Make-A-Wish to reach hundreds of kids whose wishes would go otherwise unanswered this year.
