Organizers raised about $7,500 to go toward making a wish come true for a child right here in Siouxland. "Whatever we can do to get wishes going, and a lot of kids, unfortunately, that need wishes, and to put an event like this on that will cover a wish, just gives you a good feeling, and everybody here should feel proud and happy about what they're doing," said Curt Stoever with Make A Wish.
And our own Olivia Wilmsen was there to guest M.C., and got in the Oscar spirit with a great dress by 6 South Designs and hair by Studio 11.
