Kristi’s Wish Raises Over $28,000 for Area Non-Profits
Chances are if you stopped in one of the Schrader’s Country Stores around the region you noticed the bright blue and white stars posted in the windows and around the store. There’s also a good chance the clerk behind the counter asked if you would be interested in donating to Kristi’s Wish and your name and donation was on one of those stars. Thousands of people donated to Kristi’s Wish raising a total of $28,374.17 to help to make the holidays brighter for four Fort Collins organizations.
Kristi’s Wish, a program of the Kristi Visocky Memorial Foundation (Kristi’s Fund), was the brainchild of Bob Visocky, Executive Director of the Foundation. Wanting to provide a nice holiday for area residents in need and assist organizations closely aligned with the Fund’s mission of supporting women, children and families, the Foundation chose Crossroads Safe House, Child Safe, CASA and Boys and Girls Club of Larimer County as this year’s recipients. Each organization shared in the proceeds to help support the holiday needs of their clients.
According to Bob Visocky, Executive Director of Kristi’s Fund, over the past seven years, Kristi’s Wish and Schrader’s Country Stores have raised over $126,000 for area non-profits. “We want to thank High Country Beverage for their support for Kristi’s Wish and we are especially grateful for the staff at Schrader’s Country Stores.”
