Make A Wish Guam Chapter President Victor Camacho said, "We will be having a tribute to the Wish Kids. We are inviting all wish families, former wish kids and wish families to join us as we recognize the kids and recognize everything they've gone through. We want to show the wish experience with all of you."  And board chairperson Joyce Crisostomo added, "We hope to see the entire island down at the Asan Memorial Park to celebrate as we always celebrate life we celebrate for our wish kids."

The Kites for Wishes event kicks off at 11 clock Saturday morning until 4 in the afternoon.  Best of all admission is free.  Meanwhile, TakeCare, the main presenter for Kites for Wishes, also presented a check for $40,000 to the Make A Wish Foundation.
