    Register for the Pirate and Princess 5K http://www.races2run.com/events/pirate-and-princess-5k/ then send me a message and we'll make sure you get your 5K T-shirt.

    If you can't make the 5K, but you would still like to donate, you can go here to make a donation.

    This year the GKTW Delaware Event will feature a Pirate and Princess 5K run/walk on Sunday morning 10/18! That's right- it's a themed 5K! Dust off your favorite tiara, break out your pirate garb - or...a combination of both. pirate: princess: Costumes are not required, but there will be prizes! Registration for the run/walk is open. You can register for the 5K at http://www.races2run.com/events/pirate-and-princess-5k/ . Stay tuned for more info about the event....coming soon!

    We just found out our babysitting for that weekend will likely not be available. We'd still love to come to the meet...is it OK to have children present? Just trying to figure out now if we need to try and find someone else who can watch DD

    Oh, and did I understand the 5K information correctly? You can have a stroller as long as you're only planning to walk the 5K?

    You can have a stroller at the 5k as long as you are walking. I will check with Denise for an official answer on bringing children.

    I just talked with Denise. Kids are welcome at the event! I think they would also love the hayride after (this coming from a Kindergarten teacher :)).

    The donations are starting to come in from business around the country. Disney donated 4 1 day park hopping tickets value $620! Coca Cola has donated 10 cases of soda and Dipping Dots also has donated something. Don't know what they are giving but I bet it will be something good.

    1) September 8th (Tuesday after Labor Day) - We will be holding a fundraiser at Grotto's Pizza on Main St, Newark DE from 4 - 9PM. If you present the coupon below printed (ON PAPER) in color or B&W, Grotto's will donate 20% of your total bill to us!

    2) September 18th (Friday) - Wine Tasting @ Deerfield Fine Wines, 205 Louviers Dr, Newark, Delaware 19711 - Not only will we get a generous donation from the owner, but you can also buy raffle tickets for a new Samsung TV!

    Even if you can't make THESE, and you want a chance at the TV, you can now buy tickets ONLINE!

    More information is available on our website (DelawareMagicalWishes.org) or our Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/DelawareMagicalWishes) under the Event Tab.
