Shelley Berlin Parrish will donate proceeds from
Sharing Grandma's Gift to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin in memory of
her beloved mother, Nanette Lubotsky Berlin.
Her gift will mean children
under the age of 18, who are living with a life-threatening illness, will be
able to have their wishes granted. Trips to Disney World, meeting favorite
celebrities, shopping sprees and computers are just a few of the 150-plus wishes
granted each year for Wisconsin children. Shelley Berlin Parrish's gift will
enable Make-A-Wish to grant wishes to these special children.
March of 2001, Shelley presented a $9,000.00 check to Make-A-Wish representing
the current sales from her book. The funds will help sponsor the wishes of
seventeen year old Craig, whose wish is for a state-of-the-art computer; Rachel,
14, whose one special wish is a trip to Hawaii to enjoy the sun, sandy beaches, luau
and all the sights; and Craig, 8, who wishes for a Disney Cruise to meet Mickey
Mouse and all the Disney characters.
