If you like playing poker, then the perfect excuse to play is on Aug. 16 at the Arkansas Arts Center (501 E. 9th Street, Little Rock, AR.) The Make-A-Wish Handful of Hearts Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament will be presented by the Make-A-Wish Mid-South CREW, a group of young wish-granting professionals. Don’t miss out!

Purchase Your Tickets

If you’re ready to have a great time while also assisting in the wish granting for Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee kids, purchase your tickets today by contacting Amy Perry at aperry@midsouth.wish.org. Perry is Make-A-Wish Mid-South’s Development Coordinator and can answer any questions that you may have about the event.

Tickets sell for $75 each and include admission to the tournament plus unlimited food and drinks. Spouses can purchase tickets for $25 each so they can come hang out and watch you play, while also enjoying free food and drinks. They will also receive a great tour of the art galleries at the Arkansas Arts Center.

The top 10 players of the night will receive prizes, so come on out and see how well you do!

Make Wishes Come True On Aug. 16 Or Any Day

Make-A-Wish Mid-South and other Make-A-Wish chapters host amazing events such as the Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament, all to raise money for Wish Kids and Wish Families. However, if you don’t live in an area nearby to the event, it can be difficult to attend. If you would like to give back but are unable to attend a Make-A-Wish event in your state, consider car donation.

Car donation takes place right in the comforts of your home. Just call Wheels For Wishes at 1-877-431-9474 or fill out an online vehicle donation form, and your vehicle will be picked up or towed away, anywhere in your area. Wheels For Wishes will pick up or tow away your vehicle in Arkansas (places like Little Rock, Fayetteville & Rogers and Fort Smith), Western Tennessee (like Memphis or Jackson), or Tupelo, and Oxford & Clarksdale in Northern Mississippi. Just let us know where we can find your vehicle and we’ll tow it away at no cost to you, whether the vehicle runs or not!

When you donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, your vehicle is either recycled or auctioned off and the earned proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish Mid-South. Plus, you get a great tax deduction! To learn more about your tax deduction, please visit our Tax Answers page.

Donate a vehicle and instead of having it take up space in your driveway, garage, or shed, let it be turned into a wish for a child with a critical illness. Children between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 will benefit from your generosity!
