live music and fundraising – together we support children in need

Wish upon a Dream is a special one-off Event where music and entertainment are at the service of children in need. Together with fellow musicians singer and songwriter Paola Granati wants to put the spotlight on essential needs of children whose dreams of having a better life are shattered because of circumstances outside of their control.

Children in need often wish for things we take for granted: a warm meal, a blanket or a roof over their heads. With this event we can gather and enjoy some live music while we think of children in need and save their dreams. There will be a great acitivity for children to be part of saving dreams of children in need.
