Delicious Wishes Burger Bash

The 2nd annual Make-A-Wish Delicious Wishes Burger Bash is almost here, and there is still time to purchase a ticket to help the organization raise money to fund wish granting across the Panhandle. 

This year's Burger Bash is Thursday, Sept. 28 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Cornerstone Ranch Event Center in Bushland.

The event will feature a variety of unique burger creations from local restaurants and cook teams that are vying to win the title of 'Best Burger in the Panhandle.' There will also be live and silent auctions, live music from Chancy Bernson and an open bar. 

Attendees will witness a surprise wish reveal where a local child will learn his wish is coming true. They will also hear from a local 5-year-old whose wish to meet Willie Nelson came true just a few months ago. 

Delicious Wishes Burger Bash

This is Make-A-Wish's largest annual fundraiser and comes at a time when the demand for wishes in our area is at an all-time high. The organization is seeing a 22 percent increase in wish referrals from area doctors for children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening condition.  

However, funding is not matching up with the demand for wishes in our area.

MORE: Wishing Well: wishes on the rise

Make-A-Wish North Texas serves the entire Texas Panhandle and anticipates granting more than 30 wishes this year. The average wish costs $8,000 to $10,000. That means the organization needs to raise more than $300,000 this year. 

Make-A-Wish officials hope Burger Bash can help them reach that goal so no sick child will be turned away. 

"Wishes are a profoundly effective way for children to cope with and conquer critical illness," said Alba Austin, the development officer for Amarillo's Make-A-Wish office. "They spark the imagination and power essential to hope. Families are uplifted and communities are forever enriched. We cordially invite the community, as well as businesses and media to join us for this memorable evening. Wish kids are being referred at an all-time high here in the Amarillo area, and your support is crucial."

Burger Bash tickets are $50 per person. They are being sold online in advance and at the door on the day of the event. To purchase a ticket, click here

Rube Goldberg Art Display

The Art of Rube Goldberg is on display at the Citadelle Art Foundation in Canadian.

Goldberg, best known for his series of popular cartoons depicting complicated gadgets that perform simple tasks, was a Pulitzer Prize winner.

It is estimated that he created 50,000 cartoons in his lifetime. 

"The Citadelle is excited to bring the imaginative work of Rube Goldberg to the Panhandle. His work is the pinnacle of artistic expression and innovation," said Executive Director Wendie Cook. "It is an amazing opportunity for people of all ages to come and enjoy this inventive work."

The exhibition will be displayed through Nov. 26. 

Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and free for children 18 and younger.

PPHM Lonesome Dove Event

Pictures from the filming of LONESOME DOVE will be on display at the museum until December 3. The traveling exhibition pictures were taken by Bill Witliff, an award winning screenwriter, author and photographer.

Witliff also wrote the screenplays winning a Writers Guild of America Award in 1990 and a Bronze Wrangler Award from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. 

"It is very exciting for PPHM to host this exhibition," said director of Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum Carol Lovelady. "Because we have the real thing, the chuck box used by Charles Goodnight and the oldest extant image of Oliver Loving in a public collection."
