Twilight Wish is pleased to announce that John Uetz recently joined their board of directors. Uetz, a resident of Brookhaven, Pa., is a recent graduate of Villanova University School of Law and is currently an Associate Attorney with the law office of Haviland Hughes in Philadelphia.
During his time at Villanova, Uetz participated in various pro bono and public interest law programs including the Homeless Advocacy Project, an organization that provides a variety of legal services to Philadelphia’s homeless population free of charge. Uetz also participated in Villanova’s Civil Justice Clinic, which serves indigent members of the community by providing pro bono representation in civil matters including landlord-tenant disputes and civil forfeiture cases.
“When I first heard about Twilight Wish Foundation, I knew it would be a great fit for me because I had seen firsthand the impact that granting a wish can have on a senior’s life,” said Uetz. “My grandmother is an amazing cook, but she had only ever cooked at home. Her wish was to be a sous chef in a local restaurant for a day. When her retirement home granted her wish, she talked about how much she enjoyed the experience for months. I saw how much joy it gave her to have that experience and I am very excited to have the opportunity to play a part in making a positive impact on my community by being involved with Twilight Wish.”
