A Letter from our Board Chair
At Guelph Wish Fund for Children, we are busy planning for a year of wonderful events!
Our annual golf tournament and online auction this coming June will also be complete with our fun community appreciation event - We want to see you, hear from you, and celebrate you during this 2nd annual movie night at the Mustang Drive In.
At this event we can all share in the joy and gratitude of our Wish Kid families as they tell you directly what a difference the fund has made to their child's life (see below for save the date)
You made their world a little bit happier. With trips to Disney, AI-enhanced physio equipment, a van conversion, specialized walker, a hypoallergenic cat …and even a visit with the Toronto Maple Leafs, these Wish Kids experienced your helping hand.
As of today we have over 80 Wish Kids on the roster and each precious child is facing medical challenges of varying kinds. But all of them are thrilled to be part of our program and to have the promise of happier days that your gifts offer them. 
On behalf of the board and the whole team at GWFC, thank you. 
Here’s to spring. Here’s to a fresh new start. Here’s to our Wish Kids.
Warm regards,

"...both have left him a bit small for his age. But they say good things come in small packages, which is very true of this wish kid! With a smile that lights up a room and a deep curiosity about his world, Owen is doing just fine..."
