EPIC SHINE HOSTS ANNUAL FUNDRAISER FOR MAKE-A-WISH® IDAHO
On Friday August 5th and Saturday August 6th, Epic Shine Car Wash partnered with ICCU and LEPCO to raise money for Make-A-Wish® Idaho.
Make-A-Wish® Idaho’s mission is to grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses. The organization’s goal is to grant every eligible wish and has granted nearly 1,700 wishes since the chapter was founded, including wishes for Idaho children like Lilah.
Lilah is a six-year-old girl with three brothers making adventures involving zombies and superheroes a normal part of her day. Her love for all things princess inspires her own adventures playing dress up and throwing tea parties (her dollies and stuffed animals are frequent guests). When she grows up, Lilah wants to be a doctor so she can help other people.
In 2018, Lilah was diagnosed with leukemia and received treatment for two and a half years. She made her wish to go to Disney World to meet the princesses during treatment. Thankfully, Lilah’s health improved, but her trip was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
But her wish can now come true. During November of 2022, Lilah and her family (brothers included) will meet the princesses at Disney World. Lilah will receive a royal treatment of her own with a stay at Give Kids The World, and experience all that Disney World has to offer.
Epic Shine and its partners raised nearly $18,000 for Make A Wish so that children like Lilah can have their wishes granted. It was another successful year for the books.
All Epic Shine locations participated in the fundraising event August 5th and 6th. Donations entered participants in a daily raffle for a chance to win Protect washes. One Grand Prize winner received six months of free unlimited Protect washes. LEPCO and ICCU made generous donations to help reach this year’s goal alongside help from the community. Thank you to everyone who donated and made this another successful year raising money to help grant wishes for Idaho children like Lilah.
