The Make-A-Wish® Foundation of Vermont grants wishes to children living with life-threatening medical conditions.
About the Wish Kids Golf Classic
After several years of supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Vermont, agents of Co-operative Insurance Companies started the Wish Kids Golf Classic in 2001. That first tournament raised just over $2,100 for the cause.
Each year, we draw more players, sponsors and funds for Make-A-Wish Foundation®. Our 19-year total is more than $380,000, including the $30,500 we raised with the 2019 event, our most recent in-person tournament.
Given this year's uncertainty, this spring we made the tough call to postpone an in-person tournament for one more year.
In the meantime, Wish Kids still need our support, so through July 9, Co-op Insurance will offer a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $10,000 for any donation made to Make-A-Wish Foundation of Vermont through our special challenge site. We offer this matching challenge in fond memory of former EVP of Operations Brad Fortier, an avid golfer and strong supporter of the tournament, who passed away unexpectedly in February, 2020.
We thank you for your ongoing support in sharing the Power of a Wish, and look forward to gathering once again for golf, fun, and prizes on July 8, 2022 in Middlebury -- mark your calendar!
