Granted is hosting their 6th Annual "Dishes for Wishes" starting Monday.

The organization works to serve children with terminal or life-threatening conditions and fulfill their greatest wishes.

Those who participate can buy tickets to local eatery's while funding the program.

Organizers say tickets will sell for $40, with more than 12 locations participating throughout the week.

"Each wish is as unique as the child and right now we have several wishes to take care of," says Teri Barnes, Granted Official. "Most of our wishes, about 85% or more, is for Disney. We have other wishes such as toys, sensory toys, room makeovers. I wish to swim with the dolphins, I wish for a front porch, I wish for a golf cart. There's several different wishes so each wish is as unique as the child."

Officials say three wishes have already been Granted this year. 13 are in the planning process and three are in the approval process.

There is a goal of $50,000 to help fund these plans.

It's a seasonable and dry start to Friday, but the heat is going to turn up this afternoon. Partly sunny skies will stick around with highs in the mid to upper 80s. The humidity may take the way it feels up a notch. Those southerly winds will help push in that moisture making it feel more like the low 90s. An isolated shower can't be ruled out, but any rainfall won't ruin our plans.
