Often times, we take for granted the every day nuances of our lives. From watching our favorite shows to driving to the grocery store. We often find ourselves at times not playing with our children while we flip through a newspaper or a TV guide channel.
For others it’s about cherishing every moment. Every day. For hundreds and thousands of children, every day may be their last.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation® was founded with the idea of giving these children a chance to fulfill even the simplest of dreams. To them, it’s more than simply making a wish and seeing it come true. For them, it’s hope.
On March 27th the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida will hold its 16th Annual Make-A-Wish Ultimate Sports Auction, presented by Publix and Publix Charities, at the Broward County Convention Center. James “JB” Brown of CBS Sports will host the event. Proceeds will go towards granting more children their wishes.
The first wish was granted way back in 1980 when a 7 year old leukemia patient was granted the wish of being a police officer. Since then, thousands more received their wishes through generous contributions of both money and time.
This annual event will feature Miami Dolphins players as well as other sports celebrities. Next Tuesday, I will be joined by Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southern Florida, Vice-President/Chief Operating Officer, Richard Kelly on Finsradio.net to talk about this event in more detail.
