During the Eastern Starís annual state conference in the Best Western Plus Coeur díAlene Inn on Tuesday, Make-A-Wish Idaho director of development Jessica Budzianowski, center, was presented with a check for $10,000 to continue the mission of bringing joy into the lives of those kids. More funds are being collected from Eastern Star to give to Make-A-Wish Idaho, bringing the donation total to at least $18,000. Visit www.idaho.wish.org to learn about Make-A-Wish Idaho.
