Help A Family Honor Their Daughter's Wishes

Brittany Wilkinson's wish was to help people understand Mitochondrial Disease, and show compassion to people of all abilities. Now, her family and legion of friends carry on that wish. She brought awareness all the way to Washington DC, became the Youth Ambassador for The United Mitochondria Disease Foundation, helped bring awareness to our Central Valley communities with Mito Week every September, and touched the lives with her Grace, Hope and unwaivering Faith. 

You are invited to help continue that wish. KMPH FOX 26's Kim Stephens MC's this event every year. There is a delicious dinner with compelling and interresting speakers, along with a generous raffle and many alluring silent auction items.

(March 12, 2014) — The yearly invasion of “the little ones” hits the Fresno State campus this week when the 56th annual Peach Blossom Festival of Oral Interpretation unfolds Thursday and Friday (March 13-14).  

Approximately 6,000 children representing nearly 200 elementary schools from the San Joaquin Valley will participate in this year’s festival, which is hosted by the Department of Communication. 

“The festival has grown tremendously since it began 56 years ago and now attracts schools from as far north as Livingston and as far south as Delano,” said Stacie Mimura, festival director.

Created to help young people gain knowledge and appreciation of literature through oral interpretation and performance, the festival also gives children an opportunity to visit a university campus.

The story of a Christian religious pioneer will be told dramatically during “An Evening with Rev. and Mrs. Menno Simons” at 7:00 p.m. Sunday, March 30, in Butler Church, 4884 E. Butler Ave., Fresno. Admission is free.

Menno Simons was a leader of the Anabaptist movement, part of the 16th century European Reformation. His writings and leadership have been called essential in unifying the movement, which led to the creation of Mennonite, Amish and related denominations and influenced all Christian groups who practice adult or believer’s baptism. Simons' followers became known as Mennonites. Today there are almost 1.5 million Mennonites in 75 countries (more at mennosimons.net).
