Strawberry Grower Wish Farms to Host Charity Event


Wish Farms, the largest grower and shipper of strawberries in Florida, will be hosting the first annual Bright House Networks Strawberry Picking Challenge on February 7 and 8 in Plant City, Fla.

During the Bright House Networks Strawberry Picking Challenge, corporate-sponsored teams will participate in a relay-style race as they compete to win the title of "Best Harvest Crew." The event will kick off Friday evening with drinks, dinner and dancing at TPepin's Hospitality Centre in Tampa. Saturday's family-friendly event will be held at Futch Farms in Plant City and is open to the general public. In addition, Radio Disney of Tampa Bay will be on-site leading games and activities for children. Families can enjoy fresh strawberries and strawberry shortcake.

As with prior Wish Farms fundraisers, this event will benefit Redlands Christian Migrant Association, a Florida nonprofit that provides quality child care and early education for children of migrant farmworkers and rural low-income families.
"By bringing this event to the farm, we hope to bring awareness and education to the hard work of our farm workers, while also making it a family-friendly event," said Gary Wishnatzki, owner of Wish Farms.

Tickets will be sold on-site Saturday, February 8; however, purchasing tickets in advance is recommended, as space is limited. Those interested in attending should visit for online ticket orders.
