"We want to raise enough money to grant not just one, but several wishes for 2013".

“Everyone is excited to be part of the very first wish that will be granted in 2013," stated Entertainment Director and co-host Paul Salfen. “I am also excited to see who is coming out for the red carpet and who will grab a seat with Drew on set. I understand there is a long list of celebrities including my beautiful co-host, actress Mayra Leal (Machete), that will join us for this very special day.” Leal and the owner of Dodge City of McKinney, Gus Rodriguez, will bring a couple segments with celebrity guests in Spanish.

"God Bless Make-A-Wish North Texas for their efforts to continually grant the incredible wishes of young children in need of hope and encouragement," said Pearson. "It's also important to point out that Jim Proctor of Dodge City of McKinney recognizes the importance of giving back to their community.  Make-A-Wish is an organization that we all need to support wholeheartedly. They help bring hope and joy to the area children that we all live, work and worship with every day." 

A couple of ways the public can help The 2013 Wish-A-Thon meet its goal of $50,000 is by donating online or coming by January 2nd, 2013 to Dodge City of McKinney to support the event. Make-A-Wish representatives will be on hand helping the The Wish-A-Thon collect funds as well as a silent auction with several great authentic memorabilia from football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer and rock and roll.

Meet Mandy S. Williams and her #19 Make-A-Wish Ferrari Jan 2nd 2013. Mandy has raced her Ferrari 430 at speeds up to 175 mph on road tracks saying, “it's the ultimate adrenaline rush." Mandy gets a quieter thrill from knowing that her passion has helped to raise more than $1 million dollars for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Her Ferrari's driver seat was custom-made for her female frame, so she doesn't "flop around like a fish" as she whizzes along the course. In this high-profile, competitive environment Williams is typically the only woman around. And, she was the first woman to race the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

She says in order to succeed she needs to have the physical strength to control the vehicle as well as the endurance to make it to race's end. That's why she does a lot of running and weight training as part of her fitness regime.

Williams currently serves as advisor to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana, after having served the maximum term (twelve years) on the organization's board of directors. In addition, she is the “Black” of “Red & Black” (www.redandblackbooks.com) but that is another story for another day.
