                         hosted its Second An-
                         nual Dienst Custom Homes
                         Wish House Gala, in Myers
                         Park’s Eastover commu-
         nity, to raise money for the Make-A-Wish
         Foundation of Central and Western North
         Carolina. Make-A-Wish works to grant the
         wishes of children with life-threatening
         medical conditions.

            The custom home at 3822 Sedgewood
                                                                             Bob and Jocelyn Dienst with Wendy and Ben Yeakley.

         Circle was the setting for the Oct. 28 gala and
         fund-raiser. More than 200 guests enjoyed
         heavy hors d’oeuvres, displays of jewelry
         and furs, and a gallery of artwork from b.
         brown Gallery while they toured the nearly
         7,000-square-foot, cottage-designed home.
         The Swingin Richards with Mick Mixon, the
social   Voice of the Panthers, on drums, provided
         live entertainment.
 96         The wishes of approximately 15 local
         children were granted (each wish averaged
         about $6,000), surpassing 2005’s donation
         that granted 12 local wishes.
