Yesterday, First Lady Dianne Bentley gathered with women from the Montgomery area to raise money and support for Magic Moments. The event was hosted by the Women of Influence at the Alley Station in downtown. Attendees enjoyed lunch, a fashion show, and were touched by the personal story of a mother whose child received a wish.
Magic Moments fills wishes of children who are seriously ill in the state of Alabama. These wishes, even if just for a moment, allow kids to be kids again instead of always having to focus on their condition. It is a non-profit that accepts donations from individuals, corporations, foundations, and civic groups. All money raised stays in the state of Alabama so children from all sixty-seven counties can have a wish come true.
The story shared on Thursday was of a young girl named Holly. Her dream was to meet the Jonas Brothers and her dream came true. Her mom shared that at first Holly did not believe it but by that Friday they were on a plane to Houston for a concert. She had backstage passes and front row tickets to their show and claims her life will never be the same.
Children are our future and First Lady Dianne Bentley seeks the best for all of their lives.
