Solar Supply Receives WishMaker Award

NORMAN, Okla. - For the second consecutive year, the Texas Gulf Coast & Louisiana chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of America recognized Luxaire® distributor Solar Supply Inc. with its WishMaker award. The chapter presented the awards to Quitman Moon, Solar Supply regional sales manager, during the organization’s donor recognition meetings.

According to Kelli Sarmiento, development coordinator for the Texas Gulf Coast & Louisiana chapter, the WishMaker award is presented to donors who have contributed a minimum of $6,000 to the organization. “Six-thousand dollars represents the average cost of one wish for our chapter,” she explained. “Those who are able to donate that amount of money are designated as WishMakers and have the opportunity to sponsor a local child’s wish. They receive special recognition in our newsletter and are invited to attend our next quarterly meeting to accept their award.”

Until this year, WishMakers received a plaque in recognition of their support. This year, however, the chapter presented award winners with a platter that features the artwork of a Wish child.

“Attending the donor recognition meeting and receiving the WishMaker award is a numbing experience,” said Moon. “As you listen to the people there and understand what the organization is doing, it makes you want to get involved and stay involved.”
