Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with critical illnesses. Doctors diagnose one child every 20 minutes with a critical illness.

The money was raised during roundup campaigns in multiple locations at Slim Chickens locations.

Each year, Make-A-Wish Mid-South grants wishes for more than 275 children locally. The average cost of a wish is more than $8,000, and Make-A-Wish relies solely on fundraisers, corporate support, and donations from the public to transform lives one wish at a time.
