This July, Make-A-Wish will be bringing three doses of wish-granting magic to Illinois. A Million Dreams Golf Outing and Crash Champions Golf Outing are both fun tournaments where every participant will help benefit local children through Make-A-Wish Illinois. I Spy A Wish is a scavenger hunt filled with great prizes, but the greatest prize of all is every wish that will be granted because of this fun-filled event. 

A Million Dreams Golf Outing

Come to the Marengo Ridge Golf Club (9106 Harmony Hill Rd, Marengo, Ill.) to experience A Million Dreams Golf Outing. For just $100, you hit the fairway bright and early at 8 a.m. on July 15. This packed event isn’t just 18 holes at a challenging course. Participants will also have the chance to compete in longest drive, longest putt, closest to the pin and beat the pro contests.

If all of that excitement wasn’t already up to par, Bull Valley Ford is offering a chance to win a 2016 Ford Mustang for the hole-in-one contest! Green fees, a golf cart, lunch, two drink tickets and dinner are all included in this spectacular day of driving, putting and chipping. The best part of this fun-filled golfing experience is raising money to help grant wishes to local children with critical illnesses.

I Spy A Wish

Your scavenger hunt team of 2-6 can register for I Spy A Wish for just $75. Located at the Uftring Auto Mall (500 Fairlane Dr., East Peoria, Ill.), registration for this adventure starts at 1 p.m. on July 16. Drive around with your team, follow clues and collect prizes! I Spy A Wish is looking to raise $24,000 to fund the wishes of four local children. Along the way of the hunt, your team will have the inspirational opportunity to meet wish kids.   

Crash Champions Golf Outing

Check in to Crash Champions Golf Outing at 9:30 a.m. on July 22. Begin quickly with the shotgun start at 11 a.m. at the beautiful Sanctuary Golf Course (485 Marley Rd., New Lenox, Ill.). The $125 registration fee for each golfer includes 18 holes of scramble golf, an auction, dinner and raffle.

Donate Your Car To Help Even More

You may have hit the hole-in-one to win a brand new Mustang, or maybe your car wouldn’t start for I Spy A Wish. Either way, you might find yourself with an unwanted or unused vehicle. If that is the case, you can help Make-A-Wish Illinois and its local children even more by donating your car to Wheels For Wishes. Donating your car takes away the hassle of trying to sell your used or unwanted vehicle while also helping to make an Illinois child’s wish come true!

Plus, you get a great tax deduction. Because Wheels For Wishes is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, your donation is 100 percent tax-deductible. What are you waiting for? Donating is fast, easy and extremely helpful. Just call 1-877-431-9474 or fill out an online car donation form. Children with critical illnesses will get to live their dreams, while you enjoy the extra space and the great tax deduction!
