Proud to have our 2014 Media Partners:


2014 Grand Marshal

Our 2014 Grand Marshal will be Miss Madeline. Madeline, representing the Wishes & More charity, is a delightful 6-year old who was born with Hypo Plastic Left Heart Syndrome which requires on-going treatments. This has meant a few really tough procedures and surgeries in her 6 years. She is a trooper though and we’re counting on her to represent all of our Wishes & More kids and families as she leads the State's oldest parade on America’s Birthday!
