Make a Wish® Illinois grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. We have supported their annual 5K Run for Wishes but wanted to deepen our level of involvement and giving. Partnering with two long term clients, we looked for a fundraising vehicle that would engage employees from all three companies to benefit a deserving charity, give back to our local community, and provide a fun and enjoyable event for all the participants and supporters. The result was a friendly bowling and fundraising event called Bowling for Wishes. This event has raised over $288,000 the past three years fulfilling the wishes of 48 deserving children.
