TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants Raises More Than $76,290 For Make-A-Wish® Michigan
TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants (TSFR) and our portfolio of more than 100 restaurants throughout the state of Michigan raised a grand total of $76,294 during our Stars for Wishes event benefiting Make-A-Wish Michigan.
Throughout the day on Sunday, May 21, our 65 Applebee’s, 26 Olga’s Kitchen, five Del Taco and eight MOD Pizza restaurants collected $51,294 in guest donations to support the Make-A-Wish Michigan’s Wish-A-Mile and Wish Gala for Detroit events.
In addition to the in-restaurant collections, TSFR contributed an additional $25,000 toward the cause in an effort to help Make-A-Wish Michigan in its mission to grant even more wishes to the nearly 800 medically eligible children throughout the state that remain on the waiting list.
Through the overwhelming generosity of our guests and team members, we successfully exceeded our fundraising goal for this exceptional organization that is helping countless local children who are bravely facing the unimaginable at such a young age. As we continue to lead the way in our communities, we remain committed in our partnership with Make-A-Wish Michigan to further raise awareness and funds needed for offering relief to children and their families when it is needed most.
Make-A-Wish Michigan grants about one wish per day to a child with a life-threatening medical condition. With the average wish costing $10,000, Make-A-Wish Michigan expects to grant 440 wishes this year.
