Annual Event Opportunities

Make-A-Wish Oklahoma hosts five internal events each year. We seek assistance from dedicated volunteers in order to make each event the best it can be. Volunteers bring positive energy and strong drive to help our events reach their goals!

Below you will find a list of the annual internal events we host as an organization. Events are hosted in either the Eastern or Western Oklahoma regions.
Note: Dates, times and locations of events are subject to change each year. 

Wish Luncheon

luncheon

Date: March
Time: 11am - 1pm
Location: Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club

The event begins with our silent auction, where guests will have the chance to bid on a stunning collection of handbags, jewelry and designer accessories donated from various boutiques, individuals and celebrities across this great state. Then we quickly move into the luncheon where fabulous live auction items will be presented while we enjoy a delicious meal with friends and hear inspiring stories from wish kids and families.

Why we need volunteers: Volunteers for this event help us create a quick check-in process as our 400+ attendees arrive, as well as a smooth check-out process for any guests that purchase auction items. As this is a quick event, we need many hands on deck to make it happen!

Wish Upon A Par

Our annual Wish Upon A Par golf tournament is a full-day internal event in the Spring. The event features a lunch, tournament, awards ceremony, dinner and happy hour.

Shooting Stars

Time: 9am - 1pm

The clay challenge is a fun and relaxing day outdoors with good food, shooting clays, and exciting prizes. The tournament, open to both men and women, consists of teams of five shooters, targeting clays that simulate game birds and test each shooter’s skills and accuracy. Following the 12-stand course, participants enjoy side games, lunch and wish stories. 

Why we need volunteers: In addition to assisting with the check-in process, volunteers are stationed in pairs at all 12 stands along each course to answer any questions and show our guests appreciation. 

Walk For Wishes

Date: October-November
Time: 7am - 10am

Walk for Wishes is a 1 mile walk-a-thon family-friendly event powered by wish families, volunteers, sponsors, donors and community members.

Why we need volunteers: This is one of our largest attended events, ranging anywhere from 800-1,000 attendees. Our volunteers are stationed at the entrance to greet, check-in, passing out prizes and incentives and throughout the walk route to cheer on our walkers.


Stories of Light

SOL

Date: November
Time: 3-days long
Location: LaFortune Park - Tulsa, OK

Stories of Light is a three day radio-thon hosted by KRMG’s Morning News Host Dan Potter. KRMG broadcasts live from LaFortune Park each day. Hear heartwarming and inspiring stories from Wish Kids and their families. These stories serve as inspiration and motivation for KRMG listeners and the community to contribute to Make-A-Wish Oklahoma. Wish stories from children whose wishes have already been granted are told over the radio. 

Why we need volunteers: This is a donation-heavy event. We rely on volunteers to be at various locations around the Eastern Oklahoma region to represent Make-A-Wish Oklahoma and collect donations made by KRMG listeners.
