TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - This year's 11th annual Waiting For Wishes event raised $22,000 to help grant wishes in North Mississippi.
A number of local celebrities took part in the event at Mugshots Bar & Grill Tuesday to raise money for Make-A-Wish Mid-South.
WTVA anchors Daniella Oropeza and Alyssa Martin participated in waiting tables to help raise money.
A portion of the sales on Tuesday, plus the tips collected, went to Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes for local children who have critical illnesses.
A special wish will be granted on Feb. 9 at Mugshots from the money raised Tuesday night.
Make-A-Wish Mid-South grants more than 300 wishes every year for children.
