Houle’s wish was granted Monday in honor of the Old Village Inn in Ogunquit, which through an annual Make-A-Wish Ball raised more than $6,000 this year for the organization — the average cost of granting a wish in Maine.

Owners Dean Goodman and Marcia Greenfield said they started the fundraiser a few years ago and it has grown each year since. On Monday the two watched with smiles on their faces as Houle hopped into his boat for the first time.
