As our club’s calendar year comes to an end, we want to share with everyone the successful fundraising efforts done throughout the year. None of which could have been possible without the help of our sponsors, friends, and families. Thank you for your generosity, your time, and your support. .
The Tournament was completely sold-out. We had amazing weather and a phenomenal group of volunteers and a great Round Robin tournament. We also had a surprise appearance by, Marina, a former Wish Kid. She shared her experience with us. She reminded us that in just a blink of an eye we can lose control of everything and it was through the power of a wish that she was able to overcome her illness. It was Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, that gave her hope, and strength to live long enough to see her wish come true.
Special Thank You to Plantation Veltri Tennis Center and Plantation City Parks and Recreation for all your support!
The Plantation Junior Women's Club sets out to raise funds for Make-A-Wish in every way they can! We had lots of fun promoting Disney's #ShareYourEars campaign.
Once a year the Plantation Junior Woman’s Club holds its general meeting at Make-A-Wish headquarters. The energy and the magic at the Make-A-Wish is headquarters incredible. Meeting there once a year is a reminder that it was one of our very own Junior’s that started the South Florida Chapter of Make-A-Wish. Being able to see first hand where the wishes are granted is remarkable, but what is more fascinating is to see how little they need in order to do so, their office is very humble and full of positive messages and inspirational quotes.
Footprints' generosity to the Plantation Junior Woman’s Club and Make-A-Wish has been instrumental to our success! For the past 5 years, they have hosted "Shop 'till You Drop" events and donated a percentage of the proceeds to Make-A-Wish. This year, we meet just before Mother’s Day for a fun shopping event filled with raffles prizes and light appetizers.
The Plantation Junior Woman’s Club also aims to promote and support local businesses. Through its community partnership with local restaurants like Chipotle, Vivacce, and Anthony's Cole Fire Pizza, we have been able to do some amazing fundraising events. In early December, we took a break from cooking and had dinner and take-out at Chipotle. Chipotle donated a percentage of its proceeds to Make-A-Whish Southern Florida.
Walk-for-Wishes is a Make-A-Wish sponsored event, it attracts thousands of participants every year and this year was no exception, the Plantation Juniors along with friends and family came together at this wonderful fun-filled event. We walked together in a joint effort to raise fund to grant wishes!
