Our Sponsors


Our sponsors play an integral role in helping us fulfill our mission.  Many of our sponsors believe in their local community and are excited to work with us to make sure that their gift goes to granting the wishes of children in their local area.  We enjoy partnering with our sponsors to help increase their awareness by using their logo with our most recognized logo showing that they are excited and giving back to their community.  We enjoy partnering with sponsors for events within our territories helping to raise more funds for wishes and helping to get their name out in the community.  We enjoy partnering with sponsors for our Adopt-A-Wish Program helping to have a more close encounter with our true mission, granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.  And lastly, many of our sponsors give significant gifts of in-kind and work with us directly to actually help make the wish come true.  We simply wouldn't be able to do what we do without our wonderful and generous sponsors.  THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING A PART OF WHAT WE DO!
