Daddy-Daughter Date Night Sept. 12

10-year-old AnneLeigh Twer, the first Junior Honoree of the W.I.S.H. Society (Women Inspiring Strength and Hope), spent her summer helping to raise money for Wish kids.

One of her fundraising efforts is on Sept. 12, when she’ll join Chima Brazilian Steakhouse uptown in hosting the group’s first Daddy-Daughter Date Night.

The evening includes dinner, dancing and dessert with proceeds going to benefit Make-A-Wish of Central and Western North Carolina.

Twer’s hope is to raise $6,000 – enough to grant the wish of a child suffering from a life-threatening medical condition. Tickets are $70 for a daddy and one daughter; $100 for a daddy and two daughters. For information on how to register if you want to bring more than two daughters, and to reserve a spot, go to
