TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – The recent annual Yoga for Wishes event to help benefit Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley again raised more than $20,000. 

Popular since it was launched four years ago by wish granter Neva Goldstein and her husband, Howard Goldstein, current Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley board director and wish granter, the fundraiser has generated more than $80,000 in proceeds to help the foundation grant wishes to children facing life-threatening illnesses.

Currently, Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley is working on more than 165 pending wishes with the average cost of a wish ranging between $7,500 and $10,000. 

All participants were asked to solicit donations from family and friends before the three-hour yoga experience, held at the Garrison in Putnam County. The class was led by two yoga masters from the Hudson Valley: Neva Goldstein and Lela Damico.
