Friends For Wishes is an organization that supports the efforts of Make-A-Wish to help children with critical illnesses find hope, strength, and joy through the power of a Wish.

Friends for Wishes has been a dream of Norman Walker for a long time. Norman has always wanted money to help children, and Make-A-Wish is close to his heart; he got his wish! We had our first annual BBQ Cook-Off in 2014 and continue to have it every year! We have given over $880,000 to Wish Kids of Make-A-Wish! We are now having our 9th. Annual BBQ Cook-Off is held in Brenham, Texas.  The Cook-Off location will be held at the Washington County Fairgrounds. There will be a Live Auction, Silent Auction, and the Lighting of the Lanterns!

If you would like to be a sponsor, volunteer, or donate, don't hesitate to contact Tom Hanna at 832-577-2581 or email at The cost of sponsoring a child with critical illness is$10,000. You may choose a child from the Wish List we provide from Make-A-Wish. These kids become our family!

Our previous sponsors include Gregory-Edwards Inc. Mechanical Contractors, Cavender's Boot City, Halliburton, Lee Hoffpauir Auto Group, Hoffpauir Outdoor Store, Champions Rancher Supply, Noble Energy, Parodia, LLC., Smith & Associates, and Whataburger as well as many others to name a few!
