More than 300 local children are waiting for their wishes to come true right now. To help bring hope to our community’s kids, Tyree and Make-A-Wish Oregon are teaming up to turn their dreams into reality.
Tyree will make a donation in support of local wishes for every gallon served at Pacific Roads station as part of a special campaign called Fuel Up For Wishes.
“We have already raised $5,000 through our Fuel Up For Wishes fundraiser at Pacific Roads fueling station — and we’re only half way,” said David Hubbs, marketing director of Tyree.
In celebration of making wishes come true, Tyree is inviting our local community to come together for a great cause and a good time on Wednesday, Sept. 15 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Pacific Road located at 2340 Irving Rd, Eugene, OR 97402.
“We’ll be presenting an official celebratory ‘half-way point’ check,” he added.
“This event is an opportunity for Make-A-Wish Oregon and Tyree to come together to celebrate how far we’ve come, and to look ahead toward a brighter future for our Wish children,” said Mallory Tyler, director of development at Make-A-Wish Oregon.
Join us for hot dogs from the grill, chips, and drinks. Enter the Duck Drawing to win a pair of University of Oregon Football game tickets. We’ll even have special Make-A-Wish Oregon guests at the event.
Together, we can bring hope to children in Oregon fighting critical illnesses. We hope you’ll join us!
Local Make-A-Wish Oregon and Tyree representatives will be available for interviews.
About Make-A-Wish Oregon
Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. Since 1983, Make-A-Wish Oregon has granted the wishes of more than 4,400 children living in Oregon, and Clark County, Washington. For more information visit: oregon.wish.org
