Portland, February 29th. The Waffles & Wishes breakfast raised nearly $60,000 to help grant wishes of local children with life-threatening medical conditions. Guests enjoyed a rain of confetti to celebrate the work of the nonprofit. A highlight of the Make-A-Wish Oregon event was cheering on 10-year-old Mira as she enjoyed an exciting a shopping spree wish.
