The 24th Annual KELLEYS ISLAND MAKE-A-WISH SWIM & GOLF CART POKER RUN
So far $27,000 & counting has been raised! Unfortunately, Cindra and Jeni were unable to swim this year because of the water conditions, but they were able to go around and spend more time with the children instead. Thank you to all who participated in one or both Make A Wish events, and contributing to help each Make A Wish child’s dream come true!
Scroll down to get info on two of their Make A Wish children.
They are still hoping to raise a total of $32,000 so 4 Make A Wish children can have their dreams come true!
