Precision Door Service hosted a fundraiser event at the PDS National Meeting, and raised over $9,000 for the Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida chapter. 3D Destination Group provided a fun filled theme for the fundraiser event, “Games People Play”, which included an amazing array of interactive games. Attendees had a ball while raising funds for a worthy cause.
Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida grants the heartfelt wish of any child over the age of 2 1/2 and under 18 (at the time of referral) that has been diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. The wish experience exists to bring hope, strength, and joy to the child and family during such a difficult time. It’s about enriching the human experience.
Kelsea Hauck, Development Coordinator with the Make-A-Wish Central & Northern Florida states, “Thank You for electing to benefit Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida! We are so incredibly grateful for your generosity and everything that Precision Door Service has done to help support Make-A-Wish.”

Precision Door Service corporate matched the total amount raised, and donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Indiana chapter for precious Jayden Belyew.

We are thrilled to get to grant these wishes! We are excited to work with Jayden and her wish experience.”
About The Make-A-Wish Foundation
It all began on April 29, 1980, when a 7-year-old boy from Phoenix, Arizona, named Chris Greicius realized his lifelong wish to become a police officer. Many of those responsible for fulfilling Chris’ wish wanted to do the same for other children with life-threatening medical conditions. This led to the founding of the Make-A-Wish of America. Make-A-Wish is now the largest wish-granting organization in the world with 62 chapters in the United States and its territories, and international affiliates in 37 countries spanning five continents. Make-A-Wish is unique in that the Wish Child’s immediate family takes part in the wish. They have all shared in the stress of the illness and should share in the joy and memories of the wish. www.wish.org
