Dreams for Kids is gearing up for another year of making wishes come true for local children with life-threatening illnesses.

Last year, the Perham area group raised enough money to grant the wishes of four children through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This year, they’re hoping to do the same.


One of last year’s beneficiaries, nine-year-old Paige Johnson of Perham, got to take a trip to Walt Disney World with her family in December, thanks to Dreams for Kids’ efforts.
