Wish comes true

Corsicana — The Make-A-Wish Foundation in Navarro County is hosting a send-off party for Coy Bostian, 11, who will soon be heading to Disney World.

The event will feature a fajita buffet starting at 6 p.m. Saturday at La Pradera, 1401 W. Seventh Ave. The cost for the buffet is $12, and La Pradera is donating 90 percent of the proceeds to Bostian to use on his trip.

The Mildred sixth-grader was diagnosed with leukemia just before Christmas of last year. He still has about two years’ worth of treatments to go.

A fundraiser was conducted for him last May, and the local committee has raised enough for him and his immediate family to see the Magic Kingdom.

Even people who don’t want to eat are urged to come by the restaurant and wish him well on his trip, according to Alisia Greer, co-captain of the committee.
