Are you looking for a reason to break out your favorite 60s style clothing while supporting a great cause? Make-A-Wish Colorado has the perfect event for you. On Aug. 15 from 6-11 p.m. come down to the Seawell Grand Ballroom (N. Speer Blvd. Denver, CO 80204) at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts for Make-A-Wish Colorado’s Wine and Wishes event. With musical guest The Fab 4, Colorado’s premier Beatles cover band, this event will be even more fun when you come dressed in your favorite Beatles-era clothing. If you aren’t familiar with The Fab 4, you can learn all about them at their website. Now is the perfect time to purchase tickets and, if you’re interested, learn all about the sponsorship opportunities available. Please call or email Patti Forsythe or Stacie Winslow with questions at 303-750-9474.
Your Attendance Helps Grant Wishes
In addition to the fun of the Fab 4’s music, the best part about Wine and Wishes is that you help Make-A-Wish Colorado grant wishes. Last year alone, Make-A-Wish Colorado granted an amazing 245 wishes for children facing critical illnesses. You can help make that happen again this year when you attend Wine and Wishes. A granted wish is more than just a great day or week for a Wish Kid and their family. The impact of a wish extends far beyond that, as it brings them an increased sense of hope, strength and joy as they face a very difficult time in their lives. According to the 2011 Wish Impact study, a wish can lead to an improved health status and an enhanced state of mind. In fact, 89% of health professionals interviewed believe that a wish can have an effect on a child’s physical health. On top of that, 99% of parents say that the wish experience has given their children increased feelings of happiness. With incredible results like those, it’s clear that a wish is a powerful thing.
Your Car Can Help Grant Wishes Too
If you can’t attend Wine & Wishes but are looking for another way to help, why not turn your unwanted car into a wish! When you donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, it is either auctioned or recycled and 100% of the net proceeds from its sale go to Make-A-Wish Colorado. All you need to do is fill out an easy online donation form or call 1-877-431-9474 today. Our experienced donation representatives will help you through the whole process.
Your vehicle donation will help grant wishes for children in your community such as James who wished to be the voice of an animated character, Jake who wished for a Boston Terrier puppy, or Jamie who wished to swim with dolphins.
