Kids’ Corner: Make-A-Wish Kansas

Good Day Kansas

The Make A Wish Foundation strives to makes children’s dreams come true. They are an incredibly supportive non profit organization that is passionate about providing comfort to children and families of children with critical illness.

Emily Funderman Director of Community and Corporate Philanthropy and Jeff Eden, Board Member and Bubble Ball CO Chair joined me today share ways our community can support the Kansas and Missouri Make A Wish Foundation. Last year alone Make A Wish granted wishes for 40 children battling critical illness right here in Wichita. With the help of the community we can ensure they are able to do the same moving forward.

Emily and Jeff both work with the foundation yearly to coordinate events that are opportunities to support and raise funds for the wishes to be granted. Jeff is Co Chair of the Bubble Ball this year and he and his team have helped plan a great event happening Friday March 5th. The event is the Bubble Ball and can be attended virtually. This is a special event with unique auction items to bid on and a fun fashion show inspired by children’s wishes the event will raise money to fund.

Emily also shared about an event in the Fall focused primarily on the children with illness right here in Wichita, The Shaker Full of Wishes. If you are able to attend The Bubble ball or interested in the The Shaker Full of Wishes or supporting in any way please do! Visit wish.org/mokan for information!
