Third party fundraisers are a vital part of Wishing Star’s income. Anyone can put on a third party event. Past fundraisers include car washes, golf tournaments, proceeds from a day’s sales at a business and more. If you would like to host a third-party event and help us change lives, please fill out our Fundraiser Form.
Thank you to some of our recent third party fundraisers for their support of Wishing Star:
Tri-City Americans Wishing Star Night presented by Bergstrom Aircraft ($1,707)
On February 27, Bergstrom Aircraft sponsored a “Chuck a Star” promotion for Wishing Star. Hockey fans could purchase a foam star to throw on the ice during intermission. The Boilermakers Local 242 also sold tickets to the game, with a portion of ticket price coming to Wishing Star. What a fun night!
Taylor’s Fundraiser ($630)
Taylor is a 6th grader from Spokane. She was given $50 through an activity at church and encouraged to do something amazing with it. She decided to multiply her donation to help grant a wish. We think she did an AMAZING job!
Crazy Beagle Coffee ($405)
Thank you to the employees at Crazy Beagle Coffee in Liberty Lake for donating your tips for 5 days to Wishing Star.
Girl Scouts ($93 and donation of cookies)
Some wonderful Girl Scouts in Spokane raised money to help us grant wishes, while also making sure several of our wish families received some free boxes of Girl Scout cookies.
Quilts for a Cause/ Farm Chicks Show ($884)
Our wonderful volunteers Linda, Bob and Donna spend six months of the year making quilts for Wishing Star. Then more of our rock-star volunteers- Sharon and Bill- take the weekend to sell those quilts and other goodies at the annual Farm Chicks show out at the Spokane Fair Grounds. Thank you to ALL for your dedication and for helping us change the lives of local children.

For the month of June, all guests that ordered a tasting tray at No-Li had the opportunity to donate to Wishing Star.
