mawcheck_20131The San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl has once again designated Make-A-Wish San Diego as the beneficiary of the Poinsettia Bowl. One dollar from every game ticket sold will be donated to Make-A-Wish San Diego and in 2013 they were presented with a check for $22,500.

With the $22,500 contributed this year, the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl has raised $378,632 for Make-A-Wish since the game’s inception. That has helped to cover the expenses of more than 47 wishes!

More than 500 members of “Wish Families”, including wish children, their parents and siblings, and dedicated volunteers will attend the Poinsettia Bowl as special guests. They will enjoy a private tailgate party and be provided sweatshirts, prizes and a great block of seats. The entire Wish Party will be invited to participate in the pregame parade on the field and six lucky kids will serve in such roles as honorary team captains, coin toss participants and tee runners.

The mission of Make-A-Wish is to grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. For more information or to donate, visit the Make-A-Wish website.
