Annually, The Golden Wishes Gala serves as the ultimate melting-pot-event for seniors looking to celebrate the holidays with their peers. Multi-platinum selling rapper Future made a lifetime commitment, alongside Stephanie Jester (mother) and Tia Wilburn-Anderson (sister), to youth and senior citizens in underserved areas by providing resources and opportunities that positively impact their life's experiences."Seven years ago, one idea to honor the passing of my late grandmother was the beginning of a special night for the senior citizens in the community. Since the origin of its time, each year the foundation intends to create a safe atmosphere for hundreds of seniors who tend to be forgotten during the holiday season", said Stephanie Jester Co-founder of The FreeWishes Foundation.

The FreeWishes Foundation is currently accepting sponsorships for The Winter Wishland Extravaganza taking place in December for youth and families in the Kirkwood community.
