Make-A-Wish® Central & South Texas Celebrates 30 Years of Wishes
Austin, TX (February 6, 2015)
This year Make-A-Wish® Central & South Texas celebrates its 30th Birthday – a special celebration of three decades of wish granting in our 40-county territory and an opportunity to honor donors, volunteers and other supporters who have helped to share the power of a wish®.
On Thursday, January 29th, Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas recognized community leaders with the Make-A-Wish Trooper Awards, signifying their extraordinary philanthropy and continued commitment to the mission of Make-A-Wish.
The Trooper Award is an Austin original. It was here, where a young boy named Travis, wished to be a Texas State Trooper. Travis’ likeness was the inspiration in creating the Foundation’s “Trooper Award” – symbolizing the dedication of those who support Make-A-Wish and the children we serve.
Special thanks to the International Special Events Society – Austin Chapter for helping to make this evening possible!
