SPECIAL OLYMPICS 32ND EL TOUR DE TUCSON

PRESENTED BY CASINO DEL SOL RESORT

Twilight Wish Foundation, Arizona is proud to announce that they will be one of the 501c3 benefactors for 2014 El Tour.

We are looking for riders to join our team to ride for us this year.  To ride we will pay your $135.00 entrance fee.  We just ask in return that you raise $250 for the foundation in order to help us grant more wishes to our deserving seniors/veterans of Arizona.  We need at least 10 riders.  We are also looking for a sponsor or two that would like to help with the cost of printing cycle shirts for our team to wear.  Your sponsorship will help us offset the riders fees and purchase the shirts that in return we will print your logo on.  Contact Lisa at 419-9303 or Rose at 749-0392 for additional information or email us at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

OUR CHRISTMAS PARTY FOR THE MARSHALL HOME FOR MEN WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!! UPDATES: HONOR FLIGHT!! Proud to be a part of this! Twilight Wish Foundation is a sponsor with Honor Flight now and will have our logo on the trailer that is going to Iowa for this event! Good luck everyone and Yeah for our WWII veterans!     The group has chartered a USAir flight to accommodate 75 veterans from the Tucson area, including 13 from Green Valley and Sahuarita.   Gregory gets his Bike Wish!!! Gregory Neas: He was a Rn and a veteran of the Army. He has a beat up car and really wanted to get exercise and take little trips about town so he really wanted a bike and a bike lock. Rose told him that we were just going to interview him that day then we surprised him with the bike and lock that I got him. It was the best thing ever to him. He was very teary eyed and thrilled about the color of the bike and the great fit. I was so excited doing this wish as I am a cyclist. I got him the biggest bike you can get a 29 inch blue mountain bike as he was a 6'2 man.   Meet Doris. She is a sweet lil lady who wishes to go to Kentucky for a reunion this August. We are very excited to make this wish come true for a very deserving senior in our community!!! -BED WISH: TWF grated a request for a new bed.. she is now having sweet dreams !!! -We granted a well deserving Veteran and RN a wish for a new bicycle. Now he can ride around town, save some gas and get some exercise !! -AARP was gracious enough to donate for an  Ice Cream Social at Devon Gables earlier this month. It was a BIG HIT!!       We are very excited to share with you updates on Miss. Char's wish. She is having an amazing time in Iowa right now with her precious grandchildren and family. Thank you for all of your support!!! Without kind folks like you, we would not be able to put so many smiles on peoples faces   Arnold Hall....a 70 year old Veteran!! Thank you for your service Mr. Hall! His only wish was to be reunited with this truck! I am honored to have made this wish come true! FOOTHILLS REHAB CENTER   TWF GRANTED THE RESIDENTS BASIC GIFTS SUCH AS: PAJAMAS, ROBES, SWEATPANTS, VARIOUS MEN & WOMEN'S CLOTHING, COLOGNE, SHOES, WALLETS AND GIFT CARDS TO VARIOUS PLACES.   DONATIONS* THANK YOU* WE ARE SO HONORED AND GRATEFUL FOR THE DONATIONS WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM: VANTAGE WEST CREDIT UNION THE SILVERMAN FOUNDATION & THE UNITARIAN CHURCH NEW WISHES: WE HAVE A NEW WISH FOR A FAMILY REUNION TO CHICAGO IN MAY. MORE DETAILS WILL BE PROVIDED SOON. IF ANYONE HAS ANY AIRLINE CONTACT PLEASE LET US KNOW. THE GIFT OF HEARING: JUAN A, 80, A RESIDENT OF TUCSON HAD HIS WISH FOR A NEW HEARING AID GRANTED. THANKS TO THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA HEARING CLINIC AND THE ARIZONA CHAPTER OF TWILIGHT WISH FOUNDATION. JUAN WORKED HARD THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE AS A FARMER, IN CONSTRUCTION, AS LETTUCE PICKER AND IN A PACKING COMPANY. ALTHOUGH JUAN LOST HIS RIGHT HAND IN AN ACCIDENT WORKING FOR THE PACKING COMPANY IN 1989, HE STILL PLAYS THE GUITAR AND SINGS AND PLAYS FOR HIS CHURCH. HIS INSURANCE DID NOT COVER THE COST OF THE HEARING AID AND JUAN COULD NOT AFFORD IT ON HIS LIMITED INCOME. HE STRUGGLED TO TAKE PART IN CONVERSATIONS AND WISHED VERY MUCH TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THE VOICES OF HIS 29 GRANDCHILDREN AND SEVEN GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN. HIS WISH CAME TRUE ON FEBRUARY 12, 2013 WHEN HE RECEIVED HIS NEW HEARING AID! IN LOVING MEMORY OF RITA MARTIN: RITA WAS SADLY DIAGNOSED WITH TERMINAL CANCER THIS PAST JUNE. THE DOCTORS CALLED HER SON AND TOLD HIM SHE ONLY HAD A FEW DAYS TO LIVE, SO WHEN HE CAME TO TUCSON HE CLEARED OUT HER APARTMENT AND GAVE ALL OF HER POSSESSIONS AWAY. RITA WISHED FOR A RECLINER, FLOOR LAMP AND CURLERS FOR HER HAIR. THROUGH THE PARTNERSHIP AND GENEROUS HELP OF DESERT SKIES METHODIST CHURCH AND TONI MILLER, HER WISHES WERE MADE POSSIBLE. UNFORTUNATELY, RITA LOST HER BATTLE WITH CANCER THIS PAST JANUARY AND SHE NOW JOINS MANY OTHER TWF ANGELS WHO WATCH OVER US AND HELP US CONTINUE THIS GREAT WORK.  Connect to our facebook page Click here  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Twilight-Wish-Foundation-Arizona/122179967701

 

LOVING HANDS - HAPPY BIRTHDAY Fina !!!! Our oldest volunteer turned 101 this year. We hosted a lunch at her favorite restaurant Red Lobster. Now if she would only tell us her secret to a long life :)   Have you met Twilight Wish Foundation's oldest member? Let me introduce her. Her name is Fina Arguelles and she is turning 100 in Aug. and was honored by PCOA & TMC @THE CENTENARIANS  25TH LUNCHEON MAY 4TH 2011.She is a very active member. She knits and crochets (by feel only as she has macular degeneration and cannot see much at all) for TWF. She makes lap robes and scarves which are given to the people to whom we grant wishes.     Fina needs more yarn. She makes so many things for donation that she has run out of yarn...AGAIN!!! She has been buying yarn with her own money and then giving the final product to TWF. Might you have any yarn to donate to Fina? Would you like to donate money to buy yarn? If so, please email Lisa at   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Thank you so much in advance for your help!   Honor Flight Southern Arizona is taking a big step toward getting as many World War II veterans as possible out to see their memorial in Washington, D.C.
