Wish upon a Par golf benefit

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The 2009 Wish Upon a Par golf benefit took place Thursday at the Red Carpet golf course.

During the event, golfers and dinner guests had the opportunity to meet children and their families involved in the Make a Wish program, in addition to taking part in the silent auction and raffle.  There were about 75 golfers.  Organizers say Make a Wish is just a great way for the children and their families to escape.

"To be able to take even the sibling along and just have a good time and forget about all the doctors and all the pain and all the sadness and just go have a great time it's well worth it," said Jessica Miller, parent of a Make a Wish child. 

All proceeds from the benefit go towards making the wishes of Iowa children come true.  The Make a Wish foundation will grant wishes for nearly 200 Iowa children this year alone.
