Our first convoy featured 18 trucks, 12 wish children, and raised approximately $6,000. In 2013, we had 125 trucks, 70 wish children and raised $55,000 to grant 116 wishes. Over the past ten years, this event has been able to raise $614,000 and grant a total of 165 wishes to deserving children in our communities. Everyone’s help and support throughout the years help us to continue the mission of Make-A-Wish.
