Latest Status Update

  • On Wednesday, we were honored to be the beneficiary of one of the ADESA auctions. Wish Kid Colton and his mom, Jennifer, were able to talk about Colton's medical journey and his wish! We are incredibly grateful for the support of ADESA Birmingham. Their generosity towards our mission and love for our wish kids is shown in so many ways. THANK YOU for continuously supporting Make-A-Wish Alabama. "I stood and watched men and women open their wallets and pocketbooks and just give... give money they have worked hard for, all for kids like Colton... Colton's wish was 2 years ago. Let me tell you that trip was for sure a once in a lifetime trip! All of our kids still talk about it! Had it not been for men and women like I met today, that trip would not have happened for us! I walked away from ADESA blessed and humbled at being able to witness the generosity of everyone there! My heart is full today!" Jennifer, wish mom. (ADESA)
