This week, Make-A-Wish celebrates #GivingTuesday, a day to honor our incredible wish-granting community and to stand with the wish kids and families who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This week is also when we would have been celebrating the 11th Annual Wishmaker’s Ball here in Tampa Bay.
The Wishmaker’s Ball is our largest annual fundraising event, generating enough to grant more than 50 wishes each year. As an advocate and fundraiser, your support has helped children with critical illnesses get through their darkest days, and right now, the need for hope has never been greater. We ask you today, to join our efforts in raising money to help make up for what we will be losing due to the cancellation of this year’s event.
We are hosting a fundraising campaign which will kick-off today, #GivingTuesday and end on Saturday, May 9, the original date of the Wishmaker’s Ball.
Our title sponsor, PNC Bank has turned their sponsorship into a donation to grant wishes this year. Thank you to PNC Bank for your generosity in granting FIVE wishes for our local wish kids! We invite you to follow their lead and help us grant five more wishes. Right now there are more than 40 wishes in our area waiting to be granted.
Your gift today will help make every wish come true. Together, we can continue to be a light of hope throughout this time of crisis – and beyond.
