The Make a Wish foundation continues to put smiles on children's faces.
The annual Make a Wish dinner at the Workers Club auditorium on Saturday, June 19 was a massive success, with over $17,000 raised in a difficult COVID-19 affected year.
Organiser Sharon Wilson said this was one of their best events ever.

"It was an amazing night and it went really well," Ms Wilson said.
"The band was amazing and we were very happy."
She hoped everyone enjoyed themselves, but more importantly, spread the word on a terrific cause.
"I hope everyone became aware of Make a Wish Foundation and talk about it to other people," she said.
"I want to see the Goulburn branch continue to grow and become bigger.
"We're always looking for more volunteers and we gained four more last night.
"Next year will be our 25th year and the local community has been very supportive and generous throughout the years."
One of the guest speakers was Ken Gordon who said it was a very special night for his family because his son was the very first Make a Wish child.

"They have a bigger effect than they realise.
"It changes the children's lives and makes their dreams come true."
The Make A Wish Foundation creates life changing wishes for critically ill children.
