4 September Events To Support Make-A-Wish Connecticut

September is a great time for golf, RV camping, and truck convoys. If you’ve been meaning to get to any of these activities before the warm weather runs out, you have the opportunity to do so all while helping Make-A-Wish Connecticut. The annual Wishes On Wheels Truck Convoy, RV Jamboree, Russell Hall Open, and Randy Ewen Memorial Golf Tournament are all going on this September. Don’t miss your chance to have a great time and help grant wishes for Connecticut kids!

16th Annual Wishes On Wheels Truck Convoy

On Sept. 13, come out to Rentschler Field in East Hartford to be a part of the event that has raised more than $1 million for Make-A-Wish. The event kicks off at 9 a.m. with truck drivers and Wish Families rolling through the East Hartford area in big rigs and other trucks. Wishes on Wheels is an exciting day for Wish Kids who love riding along in the big trucks. After the convoy, Wish Families can partake in activities and prize raffles in a carnival atmosphere. Learn more about the event, including the convoy route and road closures, here.

6th Annual Randy Ewen Memorial Golf Tournament

On Sept. 18, the Randy Ewen Memorial Golf Tournament is a great opportunity help raise funds for Make-A-Wish Connecticut. Each year, the tournament adopts the wish of a child through Make-A-Wish Connecticut. You can help make that possible by golfing in the tournament or making a donation to the event.

The tournament takes place at the Pequabuck Golf Course in Terryville. Registration kicks off at 7:30 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at 9 a.m. At $130 per person, registration includes 18 holes of golf, cart fees, as well as lunch and dinner. Awards will be given for first, second, and third place in the tournament. Prizes will also be awarded to the longest drive and the closest to the pin. The day will conclude with raffles and dinner after the tournament. Register today to become a part of this great event!  

Russell Hall Open

If you’re in the Middlefield area on Sept. 18, don’t miss the Russell Hall Open benefiting Make-A-Wish Connecticut. This event takes place at the Lyman Orchards Golf Club at 10:30 a.m. The Russell Hall Open has raised more than $200,000 for Make-A-Wish, and you can help make this year’s event a success by registering to play.

17th Annual RV Jamboree

Also starting on Sept. 18 is the annual RV Jamboree Camp-Out benefiting Make-A-Wish Connecticut. The event goes all weekend long until Sept. 20 at the Terryville Fairgrounds in Terryville. Gather your friends and fellow RV-goers for a weekend of food, fun, and raising money to grant wishes. For more information, please contact event coordinator Sharen Ames at 860-642-6573 or sames1959@yahoo.com.

Donate A Vehicle To Help Make-A-Wish Connecticut

These four events are great ways to help Connecticut kids who are facing life-threatening medical conditions. Another way you can help Make-A-Wish with your RV – or any other vehicle – is to donate it to Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish Connecticut. We accept all types of vehicles in nearly any condition. Vehicles are auctioned or recycled, and the earned proceeds help Make-A-Wish Connecticut grant more wishes.

We make it incredibly easy to donate a vehicle. Please give us a call at 1-877-431-9474 or make your donation online. Our staff are here to help you every step of the way. If you have a car to donate, don’t wait to let it make a difference!
