Wish Upon A Sunflower Gala

August 02, 2019

Sunflower 312x214
Time :


Location :

O'Keefe Farm on Grand Lake


Mother Nature has blessed us with a plentiful and beautiful sunflower field for 5 consecutive years now; however, this year that has sadly not been the case. Due to the cold, wet and long spring that affected many farmers, our sunflower field has not been nearly as bountiful as we had hoped. We have made the tough decision to cancel all of the sunflower events for this year. Our hearts are deeply saddened by this because as a family and community, we have been proud to work with all of you to raise money for and bring awareness to Make-A-Wish to help create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. 

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. For those who have already purchased their Gala tickets via eventbrite, we will be issuing refunds. You’ll receive an email shortly to confirm that your refund has been issued. For questions on refunds, please contact us at 

Although all of the sunflower events will have to wait until next year, the Make-A-Wish children cannot wait. We are asking for your continued support for Wish Upon A Sunflower this year by donating via our online fundraising page.

And we are already looking ahead and have just planted a beautiful cover crop of buckwheat in an effort to revitalize the field and allow Mother Nature to once again shine through in all her glory next year. We look forward to seeing you in 2020 when all of our sunflower events resume! Thank you so much for your understanding and continued support! 

We love our Wish Upon A Sunflower Friends and Supporters!
