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:

  • Hot Chocolate Run – Sunday, January 12th - San Francisco. This is a 5k/15k race held in Golden Gate Park, and Make-A-Wish is the beneficiary! We are looking for up to 100 volunteers to help hand out finisher medals at the finish line from 5:30-11:30am.

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.
