Wave Energy Drink Announces Partnership With Make-A-Wish Foundation
Upcoming Events Include "Walk for Wishes" Effort.
- Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, NC-SC (1888PressRelease) July 09, 2010 - Wave Energy Drink has announced a new partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina. The upstart beverage company will be donating drinks from their product lines to Make-A-Wish orientation sessions and other event promotions. In addition, employees of Wave will participate in the second annual "Walk for Wishes" Event, set for October 23, 2010 at Carowinds Amusement Park in Charlotte, NC.
Wave Energy Drink was introduced to the possibility of working with the North Carolina Chapter of Make-A-With charitable organization after participating in an event this past April for a Make-A-Wish child in their hometown of Mooresville. The experience left executives at Wave with a lasting impression, which led them to discussions with the organization about further and future involvement.
"From a business-owner standpoint, I believe that charitable contributions should be an integral part of our corporate culture," said CEO and Founder, David W. Tomasello. Through our NASCAR program, we're no strangers to assisting the host of non-profit companies they traditionally support, such as Speedway Children's Charities and the Victory Junction Camp, however getting involved with the North Carolina Chapter of Make-A-Wish is something that we wanted to do for ourselves, in which we can make a lasting impression and effort towards their stated goals," he added.
"We are excited to have the support of Wave Energy Drink for our Walk for Wishes on October 23rd!" said Tricia Griffin of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina. "We look forward to developing ways to collaborate to give our wish kids, wish families, volunteers and donors memorable experiences and help make more wishes come true for some incredible kids facing unimaginable challenges!", she added.
