Legacy Elementary Donates More Than $2,000 to Make-A-Wish

Legacy Make-A-Wish Check Presentation It was a bright Monday morning at Legacy Elementary as the students and staff presented a check to the Make-A-Wish North Texas Foundation for $2.184.23 after each grade competed in penny wars.

The money was raised in honor of two Legacy students — Gentry McDaniels and Arden Foster — who both had their wishes granted by going to Disneyworld to see the real Disney princesses and characters as well as explore the “happiest place on earth.”

McDaniels, a fourth grader who has seizures daily, went to Disneyworld the week before Christmas after Lubbock High School students surprised her with the trip last fall after raising the full $9,000 to grant the wish to her.

Foster, a kindergartener, went to Disneyworld a couple of years ago after she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer at just seven months old.

The kindergarteners ended up raising the most out of all of the grades at Legacy. Teachers and administrators also brought money to donate as well.

Thank you to everyone who helped raised more than $2,000 for the Make-A-Wish North Texas Foundation!
