November 4, 2011 - Heat to Partner with the Make-A-Wish Foundation in 2012

 

Laredo, TX (Friday, November 4, 2011): At a festive Macy’s courtyard at Mall del Norte, several members of the Laredo Heat Soccer Club joined Big Buck Country 98.1FM at their 6th Annual Make-A-Wish Foundation of South / Central Texas Fundraiser.

 

The Heat took advantage to announce their continued partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of South / Central Texas for their upcoming 2012 Season and once again pledged to sponsor a Laredo Wish Child with a $5,000.00 donation to the charitable organization.

 

In addition, the Heat agreed that from 3:00 PM to 3:30 PM during the telethon, any donation to the cause would be matched by the Heat Owners Shashi and Priya Vaswani. The matching contribution was announced on the air by Heat General Manager J.J. Vela and Defensive All-Conference Player Carlos Ordaz.

 

“Being able to participate with the Make-A-Wish Foundation over the years has been a blessing for my family and for all the members of the Laredo Heat organization”, said Heat Owner Shashi Vaswani.

 

“Seeing the Wish Child being granted their wish never gets old and we are happy to once again be able to partner with Make-A-Wish in 2012”.

 

Vaswani concluded, “On behalf of all the Laredo Heat Soccer Club administration, coaches, players and volunteers, we would also like to thank all of our fans that called in to donate this afternoon while we were matching contributions, every one of them also made it possible for the Make-A-Wish Foundation to continue making wishes come to life”.
