Eight-year-old Alicia, who is battling cystic fibrosis, has always loved octopuses, and that’s why she wished to travel to Hawaii to visit an octopus farm.
Thanks to the support of Papa Murphy’s and their customers, Alicia’s wish will come true this week.
During November and December, Papa Murphy’s has donated 25 percent of online sales to Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington. Additionally, customers have an opportunity to donate $1-$5 at the register to support local wishes like Alicia’s.
Please join us for Alicia’s special send-off.
WHEN: Saturday, December 22, 5-6 p.m.
WHERE: Papa Murphy’s (1501 Huffman Road, Suite 170, Anchorage, AK 99515)
WHAT: Get a chance to meet Alicia and her family as they head out on their trip to Hawaii, and hear more about Papa Murphy’s support of local wishes in Alaska. Papa Murphy’s will be providing a celebratory dinner for the family as well as octopus-themed goodies to send Alicia to Hawaii in style.

ABOUT MAKE-A-WISH ALASKA AND WASHINGTON
Together, we create life-changing wish experiences for children with critical illnesses. Research shows children who have wishes granted build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. This improves their quality of life and produces better health outcomes. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. Yet, not every child in our territory who is eligible for a wish receives one. With your help, we can change that. For more information please call 800.304.9474, visit akwa.wish.org or connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @MakeAWishAKWA.
