Greensboro Community Rallies to Raise Funds to Grant Wishes


April 13, 2015

Experience the thrill and excitement of the Kentucky Derby from the majestic High Caliber Stables in Greensboro, NC. On May 2, 2015, Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina will be hosting their second annual Kentucky Derby Classic starting at 4:00 p.m. The evening includes beer & wine, southern cuisine, a horse-show, silent auction and a live stream of all the action at Churchill Downs. Most important, the Kentucky Derby Classic is an evening of charitable giving, raising funds to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in our community.

New this year, Make-A-Wish is proud to announce the partnership with Trey Herring and Schiffman’s Jewelers. A limited-edition 10 ounce mint julep cup will be available to purchase to sample Trey Herring’s Carolina Bourbon Whiskey Bar featuring signature drinks created by NC Best Bartender, Ian Murray. Renowned for his creativity behind the bar and the quality of his handcrafted cocktails, Ian is leading the resurgence of innovative, quality cocktails in the Carolinas. 

We invite members of the Greensboro community and media to Share the Power of a Wish© and witness a live wish reveal. The chapter is also celebrating their 30 Year Anniversary and will be showcasing former and current wish kids and highlighting the impact a wish had on their illnesses and recoveries. Representatives from Make-A-Wish including wish families will be available for interviews upon request starting at 4 p.m.

High Caliber Stables is located at 8506 Cedar Hollow Road in Greensboro NC.
