Join us, Saturday, April 25th at 7:00 PM for the kick-off live stream event for Summer of Wishes! Hear wish stories, participate in a live and silent auction and donate directly to fund wishes here in Iowa.
Silent Auction is live now and will close Sunday, April 26th at 2:00 PM. We will work directly with winners to ship, drop-off or schedule a pick-up depending on your location.
Live Auction will take place during the live stream event beginning at 7:00 PM. We will be streaming right to the Qsite, which you'll see once you register. The program will also be streamed on FACEBOOK LIVE, but without the ability to bid on the live auction.
Register today to start bidding on the silent auction and be ready to take part in the virtual program in your Qsite.
Every year, 32% of Iowa wishes are granted during the summer months. Due to COVID-19, the demand for wishes is even greater this year. Currently, Make-A-Wish Iowa has already postponed over 30 wishes, while at the same time, more critically ill children are qualifying for a wish every day across the state. Once safe for our wish families to travel, our organization will be granting wishes at an unprecedented rate.
Our organization relies solely on supporters such as yourself to ensure all qualified children and families will experience the power of a wish. With the average cost of a wish in Iowa at $13,1000, this is where we need YOUR help – to ensure no child has to wait a minute longer than necessary to receive their wish.
The Summer of Wishes Campaign includes our team of Wish Heroes who are supporters of our mission committed to raising funds for wishes between now and July 31st; stepping up to the plate, ready to change a child’s life forever.
You too can be a source of hope for these children by becoming a Wish Hero yourself, supporting a current Wish Hero through a donation, simply spreading the word about Make-A-Wish Iowa’s Summer of Wishes Campaign or attending this Saturday's live stream event.
From wish 1 to wish 4,000, your generosity and support has meant so much to us over the years and we couldn’t be more excited to kick off our Summer of Wishes Campaign. We hope you will join us in celebrating the kick-off to this Campaign by attending our Messages of Hope Event on Saturday, April 25th!
