Saturday, November 5, 2011: North Park, Alpharetta This exciting community event, which raises tens of thousands of dollars each year for crucial cystic fibrosis research, was started by Andy Lipman in memory of his sister, Wendy. This is the twelfth year for A Wish for Wendy! Wendy was born in December 1970, and died 15 days later, when complications from cystic fibrosis took her young life. Andy, along with his family and friends, began the tournament in 2000 to help raise money to fight this devastating disease. Eleven years and over $1,000,000 raised since Wish started. http://wishforwendy.com.
Operation G.I. Jane is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting deployed single moms in the United States military. Their Halloween party had a WWII military theme. Lots of cool costumes & fun for a great cause! For more info: http://www.operationgijane.com.
