Pontiacs of Central California makes large donation to children's charity
Pontiacs of Central California just made their largest ever-charitable donation! The recipient of the $4,000.00 gift was California Law Enforcement’s “Wish Upon A Star”. This Valley based organization grants wishes to children with catastrophic illnesses.
Last summer the club hosted the Pontiac/Oakland Western Regional Convention at the Pines Resort at Bass Lake. Before the event, the members voted to donate 100% of the net proceeds to charity. Wish Upon A Star was selected because of what it does for special children.
The presentation was made at the club’s meeting on Monday night (February 13th). Gina Anderson, the Special Events Coordinator for Wish Upon A Star, was present to accept the donation.
Club President Bill Richards is shown presenting Gina with the check, as 5 year old Sarah Mueller looks on. Sarah is a recovering leukemia patient and a former recipient of a wish. Sarah’s Grandfather, Madera resident Ken Mueller, told the club just how much the wish meant to Sarah, and her entire family.
To find out more about what Wish Upon A Star does, or to find out how you can help them, visit www.wishuponastar.org.
Pontiacs of Central California would like to express their appreciation to all those businesses and attendees that supported the convention. Without their support, this donation would not have been possible.
