Wish Week 2018

Dear MVHS Community,

Wish Week is approaching, and fast! To recap, this is a one-week-long event where we partner with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to sponsor a child with a life-threatening medical condition. As a school we hold several events throughout the week in order to raise money to grant the Wish Kid’s wish. This year, Wish Week is February 5-10.

Last year, we were able to grant 17 wishes by raising $127,781.24. Our goal this year is to grant 13 wishes, one wish per month, plus our wish kid. Our Wish Kid this year is Gabby. She is eight years old and has leukemia, which means her body is producing more white blood cells than it needs, harming her immune system and production of healthy cells. Gabby’s wish is to be famous — she wants to be famous in order to help others and create a platform for childhood cancer.

To fulfill Gabby’s wish, we revised this week and altered some events. Below you will find the events of the week and t-shirt info. Please note that Vista Idol will now be at Mission Hills Church instead of the school. Also, there is now an option of purchasing a VIP Wish Kit.

Key Club’s Silent Auction will take place throughout the week so be sure to take a look at the auction items.

Be sure to check out MV Media, who is helping grant Gabby’s Wish. Be sure to stay tuned with via SnapChat (MV Media vista_now) and Twitter (@vista_now).

Students have three options when purchasing their Wish Shirt:

  1. The first option is a Wish Kit that is all inclusive (with the exception of the Friday boys basketball game). In a Kit is a BAGP shirt and wristband. With the wristband, students get into all of the events throughout the week (Unified, Vista Idol, Ruff n’ Tuff, and girls basketball, Key Club Spaghetti Dinner) for FREE. This is to encourage involvement and participation. Students are encouraged to purchase wristbands as it is the easiest and cheapest way to participate in all Wish Week festivities! Wish Kits are $30 and will get students into every event the for week, except the boys basketball game on Friday.
  2. The second option is to purchase the VIP Wish Kit. This Kit will also get students into events for free, with the exception of the boys basketball game on Friday. The VIP Wish Kit includes a Love Your Melon hat and stickers in addition to the Wish Shirt and wristband. These kits are $50 and ONLY AVAILABLE to the first 1,000 buyers.

Without wristband, each event is $5. Disclaimer: The wristband is your ticket to events for the week. If lost, you will have to purchase another one.

Please note: The wristband does NOT get students into the basketball game on Friday. They may use their Student ID if they have the ACT card to receive ONE ticket prior to the game or pay $4 for a student ticket. Every person must have a ticket to enter the game, so please pay attention for when and where they will go on sale. Tickets for the game will be pre-sold during the week and will SELL OUT! You CANNOT show up to the Main Gym Friday night without a ticket.

  1. The third option is to purchase just the Wish Shirt. Shirts are $25.
