Premier Parking has partnered with Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee to help create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses and spark the wish effect! Through a unique parking-related campaign, community members having received parking tickets at a Premier Parking facility can pay any outstanding balances to support Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee on the first ever “Tickets for Wishes Day”. With this program, any tickets paid online through Premier Parking’s website on Saturday, July 20, 2019, go straight to Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee to support their wish granting efforts and unite families of our communities.
In addition to all proceeds from parking citations paid on July 20th, customers paying for their outstanding tickets throughout the entire month of July 2019 will be also be able to support Make-A-Wish with the option to add an additional $1.00 (One Dollar) to their payment amount when paying online through the Premier Parking website.
So, what impact will these dollars make? To answer this question, there are currently 230 kids with critical illnesses in 38 Middle Tennessee counties waiting for their wish. Wishes provide kids hope when they need it most, and research shows that they have effects on children’s overall well-being and health outcomes. The wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival.
Make-A-Wish grants a wish, on average, every 34 minutes, and when a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope. With the help of our gracious customers, we hope to be able to fund one child’s wish with the proceeds from this generous campaign!
