Happy Holidays from the Friends of the Public Garden

The Friends of the Public Garden would like to wish everyone happy holidays. We would also like to take this moment to share an inspiring holiday story.

Mike Tierney, the man behind the maintenance of the Brewer Fountain, has been collecting all of the coins thrown into the fountain this year in order to donate them to the Make a Wish Foundation. A little boy he came across when cleaning the Brewer Fountain inspired this heartwarming idea.

The boy noticed the fountain while walking with his grandparents and exclaimed he found a wishing well. He asked for a coin which his grandfather gave him.  He tossed the coin in and immediately blessed himself and made his wish. With Mike’s initiative, everyone’s wishes together will help make one wish come true this holiday season.
