This year for Christmas Wishes, we are assisting United Way in helping needy children have toys under their Christmas tree. It started with an idea… What if we could raise thousands of dollars and fulfill more toy wishes this year? The United Way says that Christmas 2015 will likely see the largest number of kids in need but there are fewer organizations who are able to help.
Next we came up with how we could do it… Have a Concert! William Michael Morgan, Mo Pitney and SCOTTY MCCREERY all agreed to come to Pensacola and donate their talent to the show.
Next… how do we get a location that can hold enough people to make a difference? That’s where Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union came in. Gulf Winds has underwritten the cost of doing a concert event at the Saenger Theater on Palafox. Thanks to the generosity of Gulf Winds, all of the proceeds of the show go directly to United Way to help some needy children have something under their Christmas tree.
The result? We raised over $15,072 to be distributed by the United Way!
