I know we’ve already written multiple blog posts about our Crawfish Boil benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas…but we’re not done quite yet!
We were originally shooting to raise $14,000 to cover the cost of a wish plus the costs of throwing the Crawfish Boil, but thanks to the support of wonderful sponsors, clients, friends and family, we ended up raising over $24,000. This was such great news for us, and we are so very thankful to everyone for their hard work. The big surprise came when we recently calculated all of our event costs and realized that we had raised enough money to grant TWO WISHES!
Christopher, who attended the Crawfish Boil with his mom and older brother, jetted off to Disney World yesterday to meet Mickey Mouse. We hosted a send-off pizza party in the office last Friday to see him on his way! Read Christopher’s full story here and see a clip from the send off party here.
Jacob, a 10 yr. old wish kid, dreams of meeting the Minnesota Twins through the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He’s been battling Leukemia for 3 years, but is thankfully in remission as of this month! His wish to meet the Minnesota Twins will also come true this month, thanks to the support of all who donated to or attended the Crawfish Boil! Read Jacob’s full story here.
We send out another million thanks to everyone who made this event possible. We are more than thrilled to be able to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas in order to grant wishes just like Christopher’s and Jacob’s. THANK YOU AGAIN!
