Birmingham, Ala. (April 17, 2015) – Make-A-Wish Alabama recently held its inaugural fundraising event, “Rivals for Wishes: Foes for a Year, Friends for a Night” presented by Windcreek Casino & Hotel Wetumpka – which took place Thursday, April 16, at Regions Field from 5:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
“We are thrilled that so many Alabama and Auburn greats were able to join Make-A-Wish and our cause,” said Pam Jones, President and CEO at Make-A-Wish® Alabama. “No matter where our in-state football allegiance may lie, we can all join together to ensure deserving children see their wishes fulfilled.”
The Rivals for Wishes event pitted these Auburn and Alabama celebrities together in a parody game show match of Football Feud hosted by the WJOX Opening Drive Team, with Tony Kurre as game emcee and team families led by Jay Barker and Al Del Greco. Jeh Jeh Pruitt of FOX 6 served as head emcee of the evening.
