Make A Wish benefit planned The Make A Wish Foundation recently helped the dreams of a 5-year-old Yankton girl come true.
Her family plans to help return the foundation's generosity by sponsoring a Make A Wish benefit Sunday, April 22 at Dave's in the Kelly Inn, Yankton, beginning at noon.
Allana Bender, daughter of Ellen and Jim Bender Jr., was born with PKU, a disorder that doesn't allow her body to process protein.
The 5-year-old recently had to have one of her kidneys removed because of a tumor.
The Make A Wish Foundation made it possible for the Bender family to recently visit Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. The Benders are hosting Sunday's benefit in response to the foundation's generosity.
There will be a bake sale, auction, kids' games, live music and door prizes. Refreshments will be served.
