“This year is critical. Make-A-Wish is much more than a great vacation or a meet and greet with a celebrity. For our kids, the wish experience is the only thing they have had control in their lives for months, possibly even years,” said local Make-A-Wish Coordinator, Kristina Rhoades. “The experience gives them hope for their future. But, more importantly, it empowers them. This empowerment rolls over to their treatment. Parents and medical professionals consistently tell us the wish experience aided the child with their treatments and their recovery. It is truly a blessing to be able to play a small part in this organization.”



Contact Mike Reynolds at the Evansville Country Club to schedule your tee time. 812-425-2243

Or contact Kristina Rhodes of Make-A-Wish, Evansville for more information. 812-305-3914


About Make-A-Wish Charity Golf Event

Make-A-Wish grants wishes to children battling life threatening medical conditions. All proceeds from the event will go directly to granting wishes to children in our community. Many of our children will recover or learn to manage their illnesses. The average cost of a wish is $8000 and we anticipate granting 50 wishes this year. Make-A-Wish has a critical need for funding and resources to make these wishes a reality. We cannot continue our mission without the generosity of people in our community. Make-A-Wish is there for the dark time in their life when they cannot get past the reality of the doctors, hospitals and treatments that are a constant reality for them.

Walk to Defeat ALS

Sat, 10/04/2014 - 10:30am - 2:30pm

Tropicana Evansville, 421 NW Riverside Dr, Evansville, IN 47708

More than just a few-mile trek, the Walk to Defeat ALS® is an opportunity to bring hope to people living with ALS, to raise money for a cure, and to come together for something you care about. The Walk to Defeat ALS® is The ALS Association’s biggest annual event, which raises funds that allow our local chapters to sustain care services and support research for much of the next year.

Please visit to register your walk team TODAY and support the fight to defeat ALS!

Check-in starts at 10:30 a.m., with the Walk beginning at 12 p.m.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Eventually, people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within two to five years of diagnosis. For unknown reasons, veterans are twice as likely to develop ALS as the general population. There is no cure, and only one drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) modestly extends survival.
