Your Donation Goes A Long Way

Making a donation to our partner Make-A-Wish, goes a long way in helping children with critical illnesses achieve their wish! Make-A-Wish South Dakota helps children throughout the state, from Sioux Falls to Rapid City and everywhere in between. During the last fiscal year, Make-A-Wish South Dakota granted 70 wishes, and they plan to grant just as many this year. By contributing at fundraising events such as the New Year’s Eve celebration, you play an important role in achieving this goal.

The cost of wishes at the South Dakota chapter average $7,000 each, with nearly 200 volunteers ensuring that each wish is uniquely created and executed for children with critical illnesses. Since every “Wish Kid” is unique, so are the wishes granted by Make-A-Wish. Your contribution on New Year’s Eve can go toward wishes of “Wish Kids.” Each and every wish has a profound and powerful impact in the life of a child.

Not only do you get to spend a wonderful evening with live music and friends, but you will also be contributing to a great cause when you attend the Make-A-Wish New Year’s Eve celebration. Gather your friends and join other Make-A-Wish supporters Dec. 31 at the Ramkota Hotel in Aberdeen, S.D.
