In the best interest of the safety of our wish families, community supporters, volunteers and employees, Make-A-Wish® Iowa will be transitioning our annual Corridor Gala to a virtual event. We are still committed to granting life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses and will continue to need your support.
The silent auction will launch on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, and run through Saturday, March 28, 2020, at noon. Bidding will take place on the Qtego website; a link to access this will be provided prior to March 25. Any auction items won can be retrieved on Sunday, March 29 from 1-4 PM at Scooter’s Coffee on 2300 Edgewood Rd SW in Cedar Rapids.
Stay tuned for information on where to bid or donate by marking “Going” on our Facebook event, Make-A-Wish Iowa Virtual Gala: Mardi Gras, Carnival of Wishes.
Last year’s event funded eight wishes, and we could not have accomplished what we did without the generous support of the Corridor community. Currently, 20 children are waiting for their wish in the Corridor Area. We appreciate all the donations to the event thus far and look forward to your support in continuing to transform lives. If you have questions regarding these changes, please contact Liz Bregenzer by email at LBregenzer@iowa.wish.org.
