The annual Rock Revival event is a “fun-raiser” for City of Kitchener staff, Region of Waterloo staff, community friends and family. It is also a “fund-raiser” for Make-A-Wish® Canada (formerly Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada). Proceeds from our Silent Auction are donated to the chosen charity and is well supported on the night of the show. Rock Revival has supported Children's Wish Foundation (now unified with and known as Make a Wish Canada) for 14 years now and has raised over $55,000 for the charity!
ABOUT MAKE-A-WISH® CANADA
Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, Make-A-Wish is the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, serving children in every community in Canada, and in more than 50 countries worldwide.
On October 1, 2019, Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Canada joined forces, with the goal of granting the wish of every eligible child across the country. United as Make-A-Wish Canada, our mission is to provide children with life-threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish, giving them the strength to endure their treatments and build resilience.
Together, generous donors, supporters, staff and volunteers across the country help grant more than four wishes per day, on average. Since 1983, Make-A-Wish Canada has granted over 34,000 wishes across the country, over 1,600 last year alone. For more information about Make-A-Wish Canada, visit makeawish.ca.
