Event Volunteering

Event volunteers are crucial to making our fundraising events successful.

Make-A-Wish hosts several 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:

  • Brave the Bay – Saturday, December 8, 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.
