In May 2003, Cass Forkin was having lunch at a diner in Doylestown, Pa. After noticing several elderly women struggling to piece together change to pay their diner bill, Cass anonymously paid it for them. Their gratitude for her simple gesture inspired Cass to found Twilight Wish Foundation, the first national senior wish-granting organization dedicated to the needs of the elderly.
Our mission is to honor and enrich the lives of deserving seniors through wish granting celebrations that connect generations.
It Is Our Vision To:
Make the world a nicer place to age, one wish at a time.
