Semmax Financial Group 2018 Charity of Choice
Our staff with Wish Kid Makensy and her mom. We helped grant Makensy’s wish to visit Disney World in 2017!
Over the years, we have supported several local charities and helped raise thousands of dollars for many of the charities listed below. This year, we are choosing to support the Make-a-Wish Central & Western North Carolina as our charity of choice. It is our goal to raise $10,000 – the amount needed to grant a Wish for one local child. One of the many reasons we are choosing to support this charity is because we have seen how it helps our community’s children and what joy it brings to families when they need it most.
“Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.” (wish.org) One of our advisors, Joe Berry, and his family have experienced firsthand the blessing of Make-a-Wish. Several years ago, Joe’s son was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and his Wish was granted to go to Disney World. The Berry family was grateful for this experience, and enjoyed taking time away from day-to-day life to enjoy the simple pleasure of a vacation with their son.
We will be accepting donations for Make a Wish Central & Western North Carolina throughout the year at various events and workshops. If you would like to make a donation at any time, you can make a check payable to “Make-A-Wish Central & Western North Carolina ” and send it to our office at 1447 Trademart Blvd., Winston-Salem, NC 27127, and we will ensure it is received by Make-A-Wish®.
