20 Oct Make A Wish
We are so grateful to have our health care practices in Plainfield – one of the most supportive communities around. This summer, we had an amazing opportunity to give back to the community that has given so much to us.
This summer AIM and Ivory Dental sponsored a fundraiser for the Illinois Make A Wish Foundation. We wanted to help make dreams come true for a local child who was in much need of some hope in a very desperate time.
We hosted a wonderful invitation-only evening for a fun night at Tommy Nevins at English Rows to raise money for a local Plainfield girl who is battling a life-threatening heart condition. Her wish…to meet one of the founding member’s of her favorite pop-rock band. Through the generosity of those in attendance, we were able to raise over $8,000 through raffles and auction items to make her wish come true. This young lady and her family were flown to New York City for a backstage meet and greet with her idol and tickets to their show. Hearing feedback from her mother after her rockstar experience warmed our hearts. We are delighted that we could help bring joy into their lives for a weekend.
