Make-A-Wish is an organization that grants “wishes” to children with life threatening medical conditions. The Cherokee County Junior Ambassadors host a “Wish Week” each March. During Wish Week, the students have many opportunities to raise money for the organization. We have theme days, spirit nights at local restaurants, princess parties, and we even have students stand outside of Walmart to collect donations. In 2018, we raised about $15,000 to donate to the organization. In 2018, we were able to provide the funds to send a young girl from Gaffney, named Lucy, and her family to Disney World. Wish Week is one of the busiest weeks at Gaffney High, but it is worth it.
