This past summer, Steve De Vries entered a charity fishing tournament, expecting only to spend the day enjoying the weather and company of his fishing partners. To his surprise, Steve won the tournament! He generously dedicated the $16,000 prize money to help grant wishes for Minnesota kids!
Steve, his family and his company, Showcore Inc., have supported our annual Wish Ball gala through individual sponsorships and corporate partnerships since 2008. They have been an essential part of this event, which is critical to funding life-changing wishes. In addition, Steve has served as a member of the Make-A-Wish Minnesota Board of Directors.
Although Showcore also supports other children's health organizations, the Make-A-Wish mission has especially resonated with Steve's family because of the unique way a wish continues to impact families years after it's been granted.
We'd like to extend a big "thank you" to the De Vries family and Showcore Inc. for helping to bring hope, strength and joy to more than 75 wish kids over the past eight years!
