Westfield-based A Birthday Wish raised $40,000 Friday during the annual Wonder of Wishes fundraising event. Westfield resident Jane Hoffman founded the organization in 2014 to demonstrate to children in foster care that their life matters and that they are truly special by providing them with a birthday gift and card selected especially for them.
Attendance at this year’s Wonder of Wishes was almost double that of last year’s, according to Hoffman.
“It’s amazing to see the community’s support for children, teens and young adults in New Jersey foster care,” she said.

On Friday, Oct. 13, A Birthday Wish will celebrate three years of granting special wishes for children in New Jersey foster care. The third annual Wonder of Wishes event, which sold out last year, will be held at the new Stage House Tavern in Mountainside, New Jersey. It’s a new, larger venue for this fun night out and it promises to be one of the highlights of the fall season. The Benjamins will be preforming this year, bringing their high-energy set list packed with current songs and old favorites. General admission tickets ($35) and sponsorships are available.
