Taste Spokane, Send a Friend a Goat™, Wishes & Wine

Our main fundraisers support Wishing Star as we grant wishes to wish kids & families! We offer Taste Spokane early in the year, followed by our Send a Friend a Goat fundraiser and leading into our Wishes & Wine events in both Spokane and the Tri-Cities in the fall.  We could not make these events possible without the help of our volunteers and supporters!
