Make-A-Wish

Representatives of Tudor’s Biscuit World and the Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and Southern West Virginia are pictured at the check presentation at the third annual Day at the Park at the West Virginia Miners’ Linda K. Epling Stadium. Tudor’s Biscuit World employees and customers around the state worked together to raise $34,000 to help grant the wishes of West Virginia children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. Gauley Bridge’s Karson Smith, who was chosen to throw out the first pitch at the game and will have his wish to go to Disney World granted by the group later this year, is pictured standing at far left with his aunt, Heather Stone, and her son, Jameson. He is the son of Kenny Smith and Megan Begley.

Since October 2018, Tudor’s Biscuit World employees and customers throughout the state have worked together to raise $34,000 in an effort to help grant the wishes of West Virginia children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions, according to a company press release.

The release said Tudor’s Biscuit World’s donation was presented at the third annual Day at The Park event hosted by Tudor’s and the Make-A-Wish® Foundation at the Beckley Miners’ Linda K. Epling Stadium, where the game’s opening pitch was thrown by Karson Smith.

Smith, a Make-A-Wish recipient from Gauley Bridge, will have his wish to go to Disney World granted in October.

Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and Southern West Virginia grants approximately 120 wishes throughout the state every year, the release said, and at an average cost of $4,400 per wish, Tudor’s Biscuit World’s donation represents financing for nearly eight of these life-changing wishes.

Tudor’s Biscuit World has collected donations to fulfill the wishes of Make-A-Wish children since 1993. Over the last 26 years, Tudor’s has collected monetary donations from customers through annual promotions and wishing wells located in Tudor’s Biscuit World restaurants throughout the state.
