Troop #5308 raises Money for Make-A-Wish

Girl Scout 480x240
Ocean Springs– At 9:00 a.m. on Friday, February 1st, at St. Alfonso’s Catholic Church, Girl Scout Troop #5308 presented a check to Make-A-Wish Mississippi in memory of their fellow girl scout, Sophia Mohler, who was also a wish child!

The troop, lead by Karen Futch, recently held a cake auction in honor of Sophia who was granted her wish–to go to Disney World®–in January of 2010. Sophia, who was also a member of troop #5308, later passed away in September of 2010.

The girls, ages 5-11 were given several themes to choose from and baked cakes with the help of a friend or family member. Family, friends and members of the community gathered to place live bids on each cake. The Troop donated $300 to Make-A-Wish from the event proceeds.

The troop hopes to grow this event and develop greater community awareness of Make-A-Wish in their town.
