On December 12th, Adam S. Kutner & Associates announced a $25,000 matching gift to Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada at The Wishing Place during their Wish HeroesSM Holiday Campaign Kick-Off Ceremony.
Wish Heroes are among the most important and loyal supporters of Make-A-Wish who celebrate the transformational power of wishes and, through personal fundraising, ensure local wishes are granted for years to come. Community heroes like Adam S. Kutner help spread awareness of the incredible power of a wish and, together with the Wish Heroes, move closer to a future in which the non-profit can grant every eligible child’s wish. During the month of December, fourteen (14) Las Vegas Wish Heroes are working hard to raise $1,000 each for Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada to make more wishes possible.
“Adam Kutner Cares, the charitable arm of Adam S. Kutner & Associates, is pleased to match up to $25,000 to enhance the efforts of the other Wish Heroes and continue to grant wishes for children with critical illnesses in our community,” said Adam S. Kutner. “My team and I are proud to support Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada as Wish Heroes and encourage others to contribute their own time or resources to transforming lives, one wish at a time.”
The average cost of a wish nationwide in FY2018 was $11,161, which includes cash and in-kind support. Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada granted 158 wishes during FY2019 and relies on the generous contributions of individuals, like Adam S. Kutner, to continue to make life-changing wishes possible for children with critical illnesses in southern Nevada.
“A wish gives children renewed energy and strength, brings families closer together and unites communities,” said Caroline Ciocca, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada. “Our vision is to grant the wish of every eligible child in southern Nevada. The support provided by Adam Kutner and our wish heroes is an investment in hope, strength, and joy, and ensures that the critically ill children of our community get the emotional medicine they need.”
