AnneLeigh is partnering with Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to benefit Make-A-Wish

Charlotte, NC – 10-year-old AnneLeigh Twer is spending her summer helping wish kids. The first ever Junior Honoree of the W.I.S.H. Society has a goal of raising $6,000, which is enough to grant a wish of a child suffering from a life-threatening medical condition. In partnership with Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, AnneLeigh will be holding a Lemonade Stand and selling baked goods on Saturday, September 20 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. to benefit Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina.

AnneLeigh and Robin Smith-Salzman, the owner of Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, have partnered with CBS Radio, who will be broadcasting live from the event. The community is encouraged to stop by, enjoy some refreshments and support a great local cause. Robin is known for her generosity and commitment to local non-profits. Being the W.I.S.H. Society Woman of the Year in 2013, Robin has embraced the opportunity to support AnneLeigh with open arms. 

Honored for their career success, significant contributions to the community and their personal commitment to philanthropy; the W.I.S.H. Society celebrates the accomplishments of an extraordinary group of local women. W.I.S.H. Society Honorees join forces with Make-A-Wish® to adopt the wishes of central and western North Carolina's bravest, most inspiring children: wish-kids. While the Central and Western North Carolina chapter is currently granting over 240 wishes this year, there are also 200 wishes that are waiting to be granted. Each honoree has the responsibility of raising at least $6,000 so that they can grant a local child’s wish and help to bring Make-A-Wish closer to their goal of granting every wish.
