For 2018, Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader partnered with Make-A-Wish Missouri to help create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. BFRR was the presenting sponsor for the annual Bubble Ball and Walk for Wishes events. We also helped grant 10 wishes for children in the Kansas City area.
The team at Make-A-Wish taught us that a wish is more than just a nice thing; it is an opportunity to change the lives of children. Make-A-Wish seeks to exceed the expectations of every wish kid, and we were more than happy to lend a hand to make each wish exceptional. Throughout the year, the firm hosted children and their families for special send-off parties before trips to Disney World and helped facilitate incredible wish reveals. From surprising Breanna with a visit to her favorite radio station to customizing Liam’s YouTube studio, we have enjoyed every minute of our partnership with Make-A-Wish.
Throughout our time with Make-A-Wish, we have seen how a wish can change a life. Wishes really do impact everyone involved. So much so that in September Mike Rader joined the Board of Directors for the Missouri & Kansas Make-A-Wish Chapter. In this position, Mike will head the Executive Leadership Team for the 2019 Walk for Wishes, and he will be joined on that team by fellow Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader attorney Kelly Frickleton.
It has been a true pleasure and joy to work with Make-A-Wish over the past year. We are excited to continue to be involved with bringing life-changing wishes to many more children.
