12th Annual Magical Mix Kids Fundraiser January 28

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL)-- For 12 years now, thanks to Magical Mix Kids, dreams have been coming true for chronically ill children all across the Cedar Valley.

Every year in September, this non-profit Cedar Valley area organization sends children and their families to Walk Disney World in Orlando, Florida. You can call it the hometown, Iowa version of Make-A-Wish. It's all possible thanks to the amazing efforts of locally-owned, 93.5-The Mix radio and the Re/Max Home Group and several generous other local sponsors.

Needless to say, the annual trip to Florida for the Magical Mix Kids and their families is not cheap. It costs literally thousands of dollars. This magical trip relies on the generosity of caring Iowans, through various fund-raisers.  Money to turn the Magical Mix Kids trip into a reality comes courtesy of hundreds of donations from Cedar Valley residents and businesses. Without that support, the Magical Mix Kids trip would not be possible.

The trip's main fundraiser is the annual Magical Mix Kids auction. This year, the auction will take place on Friday, January 28, at the Park Place Event Centre, at 1521 Technology Pkwy in Cedar Falls. Re/Max Home Group invites you to this year's event, which will begin at 5 PM, when the doors open. The fun and casual event also features a host of activities, as well as the usual ‘silent' and ‘live' auctions and great food. 

The annual auction will feature more than one hundred ‘Silent' and ‘Live' auction items. The ‘Silent Auction' opens right at 5 PM. The ‘Live' auction is set to begin at 8 PM. In addition, several of the children and families whom have made the trip in the past will be in attendance.

For several years now, the RE/MAX Home Group has been the driving force and major sponsor behind the annual success of this major fundraising event for magical Ix Kids.

But, there are several other major sponsors for this January 28: they include PFG Best, Budweiser, HyVee Wine & Spirits, Valley Bank, Sounds Advice Vac & Video, Acupuncture & Chinese Medical Clinic, L & N Transportation Services,  Paco Rosic, Galleria de Paco, 93.5 The Mix and the Park Place Event Centre.

For more information, call 93.5-The Mix-Radio at 319-277-1918, or contact The Re/Max Home Group at 319-232-7100 or 319-266-7100.
