Special Projects & Charities
MPI Sacramento/Sierra Nevada Chapter
Each year, MPISSN seeks to reach out to the community and provide support to a qualified charity throughout the program year. This may include proceeds from raffles donations, and general philanthropic promotion of the organization. After soliciting and reviewing proposals last spring, MPISSN selected Make-A-Wish of Sacramento and Northeastern California. Board members were thrilled at the selection due to the organization’s overarching mission and goals, but also because of how Make-A-Wish personally touched the hearts of a member’s family. Make-A-Wish works to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. A key objective is to take children away from their medical struggles. It’s important to note, too, that the experience is not a “last wish.” In fact, many children go on to recover and live long, full lives. MPISSN’s meeting and event raffles are an important activity as 100 percent of these proceeds will be given to Make-A-Wish at the end of our fiscal year to help facilitate their good work and wish-granting process. We hope to raise at least $1,000 for Make-A-Wish this year. Your support of our raffles either via prize donation or ticket purchases will ensure our success!

Throughout the 2011/2012 year, MPISSN held its monthly raffle in an effort to raise funds for this worthy cause. We are pleased to have raised and presented a check for $2,138.00 to the Yolo Foster & Kinship Care Program at Woodland Community College.
