35 food trucks pulling into the 5th Annual Wish Upon A Food Truck Festival, 20 of them participating for the first time. The festival also celebrated 8 wonderful kids who had their wish granted by the Foundation with a cake decorating contest.
Each kid was paired up with a TV or radio personality and had 15 minutes to decorate it anyway they wanted to. Chief Meterologist MaryEllen Pann and FOX43's Samantha Galvez decorated with 15-year-old Zerek Hoffer. The cakes were then auctioned, benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
"It means a lot because like in all my years of being a wish granter you see first hand how much it impacts the family and the child," Sherrie Davis, Wish Granter and event organizer, said. "And just to know that everybody here is here to help those children, it means the world."
The cakes were judged by celebrity chefs including "Eddie" Konrad from Top Chef, and Junior Chopped Champion Danielle McNerney. The auction alone raised more than $600.
