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 a long term client, we looked for a fundraising vehicle that would engage employees from both 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 raised over $60,000 in its inaugural year and we were able to fulfill the wishes of 10 deserving children. The following year with the efforts of an additional client and its employees we doubled the amount of funds raised.
