Two Pennsylvania Events On July 12 To Benefit Make-A-Wish

Posted in Donate Car Greater Pennsylvania & West Virginia News, Friday, June 27, 2014

On July 12, there are two fun events that you can attend to benefit our partner Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Come to Emporium, Pa., for the Dream Makers Motorcycle Dice Run and Auction, or to North East, Pa., for the Presque Isle Wine Cellars Creekside Festival and Duck Race. Proceeds from both events will benefit Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia, helping them grant wishes for children facing life-threatening medical conditions. 

Ride Over To The Dream Makers Motorcycle Dice Run And Auction

Starting at 10:30 a.m. on July 12 at the Cameron County Veterans Club (427 East 3rd Street, Emporium, Pa.), this 110 mile ride will take you through three beautiful counties. Bikers are sure to enjoy the scenery, as this area has been called “Land of the Endless Mountains” and “God’s Country.” During the ride, participants can stop at pre-determined areas to participate in the dice run. Similar to a poker run where participants pick up a card at each designated area, in a dice run they roll dice at each stop, hoping to achieve the highest score by the end of the run. Snacks will also be available during the ride. When you return back to the Veterans Club, there will be a prize giveaway, 50/50 raffle and auction. The cost to attend the Dice Run is $10 per person. For more information, contact Walt Snipe at 814-546-2588.

Come To The Presque Isle Wine Cellars Creekside Festival And Duck Race

If motorcycling isn’t your style, you can still support Make-A-Wish on July 12 at this event. From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., families can enjoy a day of fun that includes carnival games, a 50/50 raffle, and a duck race. For $5 you can enter a duck in the race and if you’re one of the first three ducks to cross the finish line you’ll receive a prize. There will be something for everyone in the family to enjoy at this event. Contact Jake or Dawn at 814-725-1314 ext. 203 or 204.

More Ways To Support Make-A-Wish

If you can’t make it to either of these events this July, you can still help grant wishes for children in your community who are facing life-threatening medical conditions. Donating a car, SUV, RV, or boat to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish, will go towards granting more wishes. Is your motorcycle not fit for the Dice Run? You can donate your motorcycle to Wheels For Wishes too! Donating allows you to avoid the hassle of trying to fix it up or sell it yourself. And even if your vehicle isn’t running, Wheels For Wishes can usually still accept it. Simply call 1-855-675-9474 or fill out an online vehicle donation form. Either method will only take a moment of your time, but will make a huge difference in the life of a child whose wish is granted!
