Big things are happening for Evansville's Granted organization. We learned earlier this week that Granted won/received the annual $10,000 donation from the 100 Guys Who Care. The non-profit plans to use that money to purchase a new van that will come in handy when granting wishes for families. Granted shared the exciting news on Facebook, saying...

We were honored to be nominated as one of three amazing organizations to present last night at the 100 Guys Who Care - Evansville meeting. We were competing against two other very worthy and impactful organizations. We are very grateful to be able to announce that we were voted the WINNERS! We received $10,400 that is going to help us get a new van to safely transport our precious people to and from their Wishes. We are so very thankful for this amazing group of men who are making a true difference in our community!

The next big event on Granted's calendar is their annual "Swing Into Wishes" golf scramble, scheduled for Friday, August 27th. We invited one of Granted's board members, Teri Barnes, to Be MY Guest and tell us more about the event.
