Physician assistant students support Make-A-Wish of Eastern North Carolina

BUIES CREEK — Campbell University’s Physician Assistant Program held its 3rd Annual Make-A-Wish Golf Tournament on Saturday, June 6, to benefit the Eastern North Carolina chapter of the foundation. This year’s $5,500 donation increased the overall total of money raised by Campbell PA students for Make-A-Wish of Eastern North Carolina to $15,500.
“Make-a-Wish Foundation grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions, and all of the proceeds from our Tournament of Wishes will go directly towards granting wishes right here in Eastern North Carolina,” said Jessica Zanetto, a second-year PA student and coordinator of this year’s tournament.
“With a heart of serving, the Class of 2016 and all of our generous sponsors have worked hard to give back to the community so that children who are so used to seeing hospital walls will now have the opportunity to see their hearts desire.”
Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. Founded in 1986, the chapter serves all medically eligible children who reside in the 49 counties east of the Orange / Alamance county line. The chapter operates solely through generous donations of individuals, corporations and foundations. With the help of more than 200 volunteers, including its Board of Directors, Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina has granted more than 3,000 wishes since its inception.
