ST. GEORGE, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – In April, five St. George tech companies created a campaign called Tech for Wishes to grant wishes for Southern Utah children as part of Make-A-Wish Utah. The companies involved include: Vasion, Easy Storage, Zonos, Busybusy, and Dixie Tech.
The tech companies generated $68,000 (the largest donation Make-A-Wish Utah has received from the region), which will help grant more than ten wishes. The companies and their employees showed creativity to raise funds: Zonos held a cookoff, Vasion hosted a Pickleball tournament and many other events, Easy Storage planned a golf tournament, and Dixie Tech planned a special lunch where their culinary students prepared multiple unique banquet dishes and donated all proceeds to the campaign.
The hope is for Tech for Wishes to be even bigger next year. Contact Make-A-Wish to learn how
your company can participate in employee engagement campaigns throughout the year.
