Annual Make-A-Wish Bash Raises Nearly Three Wishes
Mt. Pleasant, Pa. – On Friday, November 16 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., Standard Bank hosted their fourteenth annual Make-A-Wish Bash benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia. This year, the event raised $11,000 for Make-A-Wish, which is enough to fulfill two ENTIRE wishes and three quarters of a third wish. The two wishes raised are going directly to two local young ladies: Genivive from Scottdale and Lilly from Mt. Pleasant. Their wishes will be 100% funded by the generosity of those who donated at the Bash.
“We can’t thank our communities and local businesses enough for all of the support AGAIN this year. Without all of your generosity, this event wouldn’t be possible. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for supporting Make-A-Wish with us.” comments Jayme Kromer, event organizer and human resources representative at Standard Bank’s Executive Office in Monroeville, Pa.
Donations at the Bash were raised through a variety of efforts including ticket sales, auction baskets, 50/50 raffles, wine raffle, food, and Punch-a-Bunch gift cards. The Kosciuszko Club in Mt. Pleasant donated the hall rental plus some. The band SWITCH also provided the lively and entertaining music that kept the crowd energized until the end of the night.
Standard Bank is dedicated to putting money back into the community, and associates have especially dedicated themselves to supporting local children via the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Since 1994, associates have raised/donated enough money to fund over 145 wishes for local children. Bank offices constantly have ways to support Make-A-Wish so stop by a local office for the latest details!
The Make-A-Wish Foundation fulfills the wishes of children between the ages of two and a half and 18 diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. Some of the wishes granted include trips, meeting celebrities, shopping sprees, home computers and swimming pools. Each child’s wish is only limited by their imagination.
