Farm Fresh Wishes Eat ArkansasLocal chefs and farmers will collaborate to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid South, this Sunday, August 2nd at 6:30 p.m. at the new Argenta Market (521 Main Street) in North Little Rock. Dubbed Farm Fresh Wishes, this event will celebrate the inspirational mix of connoisseur chefs with locally grown food, fresh off the farm.

Proceeds from this fantastic local meal will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-South.

Dinner will comprise five courses of as many Arkansas ingredients as possible, along with wine pairings. Tickets are $75 and will be available for purchase this Saturday at the Argenta Market booth at the CAFM.

Guest chefs who will contribute their culinary talents include Shane Henderson (Argenta Market), Jason Godwin (Simply the Best), Brian Deloney (Maddie’s) and Jason Knapp (Arkansas Governor’s Mansion).

The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Born in 1980 when a group of caring volunteers helped a young boy fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer, the Foundation is now the largest wish-granting charity in the world, with 65 chapters in the United States and its territories. With the help of generous donors and more than 25,000 volunteers, the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants a wish every 40 minutes and has granted more than 172,000 wishes in the U.S. since inception.
