The Wish Society provides a forum for professional female leaders to support, inspire and empower one another to make a difference in the lives of children battling critical illnesses. Make-A-Wish Southern Florida was founded in 1983 by two women, Nancy Strom and Joan Fenwick, who were members of the Plantation Junior Woman’s Club. Make-A-Wish Women’s Initiative Group will continue to keep our founders' philanthropic efforts moving forward by being dedicated and committed to the wish-granting mission.
