The Make-A-Wish Foundation® grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. The organization began in 1980 with one wish to a little 7-year-old boy with leukemia. His dream was to become a police offer, and through the amazing efforts of others they made his dream come true. He was sworn in as the first honorary patrolman in Arizona’s Department of Safety. Little Chris enjoyed a helicopter ride, a custom made police uniform, and a set of motorcycle wings for passing the motorcycle proficiency test. Sadly Chris passed away on May 3, 1980 but his legacy lives on by inspiring others to grant wishes that provide hope, strength, and joy to children and their families.
I personally have had the pleasure of working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® in real life. The network of volunteers and their dedication is remarkable. The organization has grown tremendously over the last 28 years all thanks to many generous donations. Please join your fellow SL™ residents as they come together to raise money and awareness for this wonderful cause.
All are invited to the SL™ Celebrity Auction to benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation®. It will be held this Sunday, December 28th from 1pm until 5pm in the Patch Thibaud Auditorium. 21 Celebrities will be auctioned off for a wonderful cause.
