6th Annual Kickin’ and Wishin’ Kickball Extravag
6/5/2014 - 8/3/2014
Sixth Annual Kickin’ and Wishin’ Kickball Extravaganza is Back in Beckley
**NOTE** NEW DATE OF AUGUST 3
On Sunday, August 3, 2014, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Pennsylvania and Southern West Virginia will be holding the sixth annual “Kickin’ and Wishin’ Kickball Extravaganza at the Paul Cline Memorial Sports Complex located in Beckley, West Virginia. The cost of admission is free. The cost of fielding a nine or ten person team of any age is $200. Anyone interested in playing music, or simply volunteering please contact Chris Meadows at 304-237-6492.
The event last year received support from over 30 sponsors, and more than 300 people who were responsible for granting the wish of a local child. Each year as this event grows we look to increase our sponsors, entrants and of course the amount of money that can be raised for these heroic children.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation fulfills the wishes of children with diagnosed, life threatening medical conditions. Your donation will make it possible for more children to receive a dream come true, whether it be visiting Disney World, receiving a computer, or even swimming with the dolphins. Our chapter seeks to use donated goods and services whenever possible, so that more funds can be made available to fulfill children’s wishes. All gifts are deeply appreciated and help to further the mission of the organization. Thank you for your consideration.
If you have any questions about the Make-A-Wish Foundation or would like to pledge your support, you can go to the website at www.wishswv.org or contact the event organizer, Chris Meadows at 304-237-6492.
