You have two fun ways to support Make-A-Wish Illinois this June. If you’re in the Moline area, come out to the Walk For Wishes on June 3. Later in the month on June 19, Women, Wine & Wishes will be taking place in Chicago. Both events will give you the chance to get out and make a difference for local kids this summer.

Walk For Wishes June 3

The Moline Walk For Wishes takes place at the Ben Butterworth Parkway on June 3. Registration is at 8 a.m., followed by the walk at 9. The walk offers a one mile or two mile option, making it perfect for any age. Adults can register for just $10, kids ages 6-18 can register for $5, and there is no registration fee for children under age 5. 

Participants will have the opportunity to earn great fundraising incentives. The top prize is two tickets to the John Deere Classic and two passes to the Lexus Suite. Another fun part of the day will be the Wish Village. The village will showcase all the different types of wishes including I Wish To Have, I Wish To Go, I Wish To Meet and I Wish To Be. In the Wish Village, kids can meet a magician, a children’s author, firemen, policemen and other people. 

Women, Wine & Wishes June 19

If you’re in the Chicago area, don’t miss the 4th Annual Women, Wine & Wishes event on June 19. This event takes place at Howells and Hood (435 North Michigan Avenue) from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Registration is $100 per person.

Wine, Women & Wishes will honor and celebrate women in the medical community who have made a difference for Make-A-Wish Illinois. This year’s special honoree will be Anna Nannicelli, MPH, LSW, who has referred more than 90 medically eligible children to Make-A-Wish Illinois.
