Allied Wire & Cable raised and donated a total of $14,000 to fulfill a child's wish through the Make-A-Wish® Philadelphia, Northern Delaware & Susquehanna Valley during a recent charity event. The company donated $10,000 at the event, but raised an additional $4,000 through raffle prizes and other customer donations. 


The event honored Tommy, a four-year-old boy with a cardiac condition, who was granted a wish when he was just three-years-old. After two years of hospital stays and open heart surgeries, Tommy's wish was fulfilled and he and his family went to Disney World. Tommy's father, Will, says, "If I had one wish, it would be to let everyone experience the joy and gratitude I was able to experience by being the father of a son who had his wish come true."

Two Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders were also in attendance and presented Tommy with a gift on behalf of AWC. Allied is proud to continually give back to an organization like Make-A-Wish that not only brings hope to the child in need, but also to the families of these children.
