Make-A-Wish hosts 5 major events a year and we usually need a large crew of volunteers to help with things like registration, auction, setup, breakdown and much more.
The next events we need help with are:
- Wishes in Wine Country - Saturday, May 19, 2018. We will be looking for groups to help set up for our Wishes in Wine Country event. Take a drive up to the Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyard in Windsor, CA to help set up tables, auction displays, signs, place settings and more.
- Walk for Wishes – Walk for Wishes is a 5K fundraising walk, held throughout the Bay Area. Get your team together to fundraise and walk! We are also looking for groups of volunteers to help with setup, breakdown, course monitors and a few other tasks at the walk. 2018 Dates and locations are TBD
- Brave the Bay – Saturday, December 1, 2018 - San Francisco. Similar to Walk for Wishes, this event includes a 5K walk, but also a cable car pull competition and a “plunge in the bay” challenge. Get your team together to walk, pull cable cars, or brave the bay! Volunteer groups can help with setup, breakdown, course monitors and a few other tasks.
- Wine and Wishes – Winter 2019 (date to be confirmed), San Francisco. This wine-tasting gala is Make-A-Wish’s signature event, featuring wineries, food stations and fine dining. Groups help with setup day, and tasks on the day of the event, including setup, breakdown, live auction, raffle sales and more.
Host a Fundraiser
Get your team together to put on a fundraiser. No event is too big nor too small, and we lend support to your event. Host a barbecue, a car wash, a karaoke night, a bowling tournament…You name it!
Host a donation drive for Make-A-Wish
Collect items at your workplace that we can use to enhance a child’s wish. We are always in need of airline miles, gift cards, disposable cameras and more. See our Wish List page for the current list of items we need.
