Connect With a Wish works to connect the wishes and needs of children in Virginia Beach foster care with the generosity of our community. We provide the resources and support needed to give these children the opportunity to grow into positive and productive members of our community.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Pungo Wine Festival this year! We are grateful for our wonderful sponsors, especially Peter Decker's Children's Charity, our presenting sponsor. For more information on the PWF and our sponsors, click here.
