Nikolas Ritschel Foundation hosts fundraiser to help grant more wishes to cancer patients

News

The Nikolas Ritschel Foundation is hosting its first ever Wine, Art and Music night on April 14th.

Kelli Ritschel Boehle started the foundation after her son passed away six years ago. She says that Nik wanted young adults to have the experience that he had with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Make-A-Wish doesn’t grant wishes for anyone older than 18. To honor Nik’s dying wish, Ritschel Boehle started the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation to grant wishes to cancer patients between 18 and 24 years old. From going to Disney World, to meeting the Dixie Chicks, the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation has granted 96 wishes to date. That means, it will reach the 100 wish milestone later this year.

In order to keep granting wishes, the foundation needs money. On Saturday, April 14th, the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation will hold a Wine, Art and Music night at Prairie Street Brewery. The event boasts a live painting demonstration by artist Sheila Anderson and the soothing sounds of Harlan Jefferson on the saxiphone. There will also be items up for auction. Tickets to the event are $50 which includes wine, craft beer, and food/appetizers. To register, click here.
