Maggiano’s Little Italy just completed its 16th annual Eat-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish campaign.
During the campaign, which ran from May 30 to August 7, guests were invited to help Maggiano’s grant transformative wishes for children battling critical illnesses. The campaign raised a total of $725,000, which has been donated to Make-A-Wish.
“I’m amazed by our incredible Guests and Teammates who supported this campaign,” says Kelly C. Baltes, president of Maggiano’s. “We wouldn’t have been able to make a donation of this magnitude without their selfless support. We are all honored to have the opportunity to raise money to grant wishes and create special memories for wish kids, in addition to continuing our work with Make-A-Wish as they prepare to celebrate 40 years of granting wishes in 2020.”
To-date, Maggianos’ annual Eat-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish campaign has raised nearly $10 million, which has granted 1,200 life-changing wishes.
“Wishes are only made possible through the generosity of individual and corporate donors, like Maggiano’s, whose community comes together each year to provide children battling critical illnesses renewed energy and strength,” says Richard K. Davis, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. “We look forward to continuing to reach even more eligible children across the country in partnership with Maggiano’s, one dish at a time.”
