Nikki also works for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Hampshire.  She is fulltime as the Director of Community Outreach and enjoys working directly with the Wish children, amazing volunteers and the incredibly supportive donors. Make-A-Wish® New Hampshire grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.  The New Hampshire chapter depends on their volunteers and if you are ever interested in getting involved, making a donation or learning more about Make-A-Wish – please let us know or contact our daughter, Nikki at – she would love to share wish stories with you.

In 2019, Lyons Den Restaurant patrons decided to help support Make-A-Wish New Hampshire, and on their own they decided to create a “Rafting for Wishes” team.  they called themselves Lyons’ pride and were able to raise more than $11,000.  Because of this support, our Den family granted a wish for a boy from Gilford, NH.
