When:  Two Weekends in December (Dec. 10th, 11th, 12th, AND 17th, 18th, and 19th)

Where:   NASCAR Speedpark at the St. Louis Mills

What:   Discounted admission ($26.99), and an opportunity to make the holidays brighter for kids in foster care by granting a Little Wish for a foster child.  Shoppers can also help grant that Big Wish of a forever family by purchasing a Wish-Upon-a-Star ornament for only $10. All proceeds from the sale of ornaments, as well as $2 from each wrist band sold will help Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition find forever families for children in foster care.  Wishes can also be granted online at www.littlewishes.net anytime before December 21st.

From the words of a foster child that received a gift last year:  “Just to know that someone else cares, especially someone who doesn’t even know me, means more than words can express.  Thank you so much!”   -Ericka, age 13
