Fiesta de Palmas welcomes its first pumpkin patch to Fiesta
de Palmas. The ‘Fiesta Fun Pumpkin Patch’ will offer attendees the ability to get that Instagramable photo opportunity and purchase a pumpkin as well. This year, not only will Fiesta de Palmas be introducing this fun family experience, but Fiesta de Palmas will also be giving back to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 100% of the proceeds from the pumpkin patch will be going towards Make- A- Wish. Fiesta de Palmas philanthropic efforts are rooted in the City of McAllen’s purpose of providing high quality of life to all who live, work and visit the city of McAllen.
About the Make-A-Wish Foundation
The Make- A- Wish Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in the United States that helps fulfill the wishes of children with a critical illness between the ages of 2 ½ and 18 years old. Make-A-Wish traces its inspiration to Christopher James Greicius, an energetic 7-year-old boy battling leukemia who wishes to be a police officer. In 1980, his Phoenix community came together to make his wish come true. Little did Chris know that his wish would create a movement that would transform millions of lives.
Today, Make-A-Wish has granted hundreds of thousands of life-changing wishes to children battling critical illnesses. Wishes that give families hope through dark times, strength to persevere and experiences that forever change their lives.
