One Simple Wish, a nonprofit organization that grants simple wishes to foster children and vulnerable families, will be hosting an “Evening of Wishes” at The Peacock Inn in Princeton, NJ on Thursday, July 11, 2013.

Dinner service will begin 5pm with the last seating at 9pm. The Peacock Inn will donate 5% of their dinner service to One Simple Wish to grant wishes to children and youth in foster care. Donations of Personal Care products (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc.) will also be accepted.

“There are currently over 400,000 children in foster care in the US, and our goal is to provide a sense of hope, happiness and normalcy for each and every one of them. And we’re well on our way to that goal having served over 20,000 individuals in just a few short years,” said Danielle Gletow, Founder and Executive Director of One Simple Wish who was recently named a CNN Hero.

By raising awareness within the local community, the organization hopes to showcase one of its key initiatives: showing that anyone can make a difference in the life of a foster child and that a simple wish granted can have a big and lasting impact.

“One Simple Wish makes giving easy and meaningful, but more importantly, it tangibly shows our nation’s foster kids and at-risk youth that someone cares about them enough to not only recognize their wishes, but to grant them as well. Our site proves that there is tons of love and hope out there,” says Gletow.

For reservations please call The Peacock Inn at (609) 924-1707. Seating is limited.
