Latest Status Update

  • Mary and Elizabeth are longtime advocates for wishes, and we are so thankful for their passion for Georgia kiddos. One little boy in particular captured their hearts during his time on earth: Zayden, who wished to blast off to Saturn in a red rocket ship. At Wish Ball 2017, #CommanderZ reminded them to dream big and believe that anything is possible. This year, Mary and Elizabeth's family foundation, The Nunnally Foundation, is our Presenting Sponsor at #WishBall2019. We're counting down the days until September 28th! 🗓️🌟💙
