12th & Filbert celebrated World Wish Day on Thursday, April 26, by hosting a dinner for Kennedi, a Wish kid in Philadelphia.

Kennedi is 3-years-old and has been diagnosed with Trisomy 21. Kennedi likes the Mickey Mouse Club, Elmo, macaroni and cheese twists. In May her wish will be granted when she
goes to a Florida theme park! Kennedi asked Make-A-Wish to send her to the theme park because she loves Mickey.

Come into our restaurants now until June 27 to support children like Kennedi and look for more Make-A-Wish stories throughout the program!
