Fans of big hats and individuals with big hearts will enjoy the Dubuque Gala which is scheduled for March 22, at the Grand River Center in Dubuque, Iowa. The Gala has been organized to benefit our partner, Make-A-Wish, in their effort to provide wishes for children with critical illnesses in Iowa. Make-A-Wish Iowa was able to grant a child’s wish every other day in 2013, and is hoping to do even more in 2014. Those people attending the Run For The Roses Gala in Dubuque Saturday, March 22, have the opportunity to help make wishes come true!

Tickets are available now for $45 a person or $350 to sponsor a table of eight. When you attend this fun Gala you will also enjoy a delicious sit-down dinner, live music from Sid V And The Human Resources, along with auction items up for bid. Don’t leave your cell phone at home, this year’s Gala will feature an all new way to bid on auction items using your phone! To purchase tickets or learn more about the Run For The Roses Gala, contact Natalie at (800) 797-WISH (9474) or send an e-mail to The event will take place beginning at 5 p.m. and lasts until 10 p.m.

Your Contribution Can Help Make-A-Wish Grant Wishes

The Gala is one of many great ways to help Make-A-Wish Iowa grant wishes this year. Other events include Walk For Wishes races, dinners and silent auctions. Continue to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to see all of the ways you can help Make-A-Wish Iowa in 2014. Every little bit counts and since a majority of wishes involve some kind of travel, your contribution can help to send Wish Kids from your neighborhood in Des Moines, Davenport and Cedar Rapids all across the United States to make their wish come true!

If you have a busy schedule and can’t make all of the fun events Make-A-Wish throws throughout the year there are other ways to give. You can start with a general donation or by donating your frequent flier miles. If you happen to have a vehicle that is a little worse for wear or are looking to upgrade to a newer more gas efficient model, consider donating your vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish.

Wheels For Wishes can take your car, truck, RV, SUV or ATV and turn it into wishes through Make-A-Wish. That vehicle that is just taking up space on your lot can help make wishes come true when you donate. It is easy to donate a car to charity! Just give us a call at 1-877-431-9474 or use the simple car donation form online. You will be contacted within 24 hours of the next business day to schedule your free pick-up or tow from anywhere in Iowa! Plus, your charity vehicle donation is 100 percent tax deductible.
