Cinderella helps grant wish
Cinderella made a surprise appearance during the Ruth Hobbs benefit two weeks ago, bringing news that the Make-A-Wish foundation along with Dreams for Kids group will grant Hobbs’ wish of traveling to Disney World. The 6-year-old New York Mills’ girl is currently battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Her family, Jerry and Susan Hobbs, plan to make the trip to the Florida theme park in October, when Ruth will be in the maintenance stage. Dreams for Kids is a group out of Perham that raises money at the local level to ensure area children battling serious illnesses receive their dream trip from Make-A-Wish. Ruth is the 30th wish Dreams for Kids have funded. In their ninth year, the group is planning a fundraising motorcycle ride at the NY Mills VFW on July 26.
