FERGUS, Ont. -Trucking for Wishes raised more than $30,000 at the Fergus Truck Show to make dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses.
Since 2007, Trucking for Wishes has raised more than $75,000 for Make-A-Wish on behalf of the trucking industry.
“I would like to thank everyone who attended the Fergus Truck Show and all of our sponsors. Without the generous support of the trucking industry this would have never been possible,” said event coordinator Aaron Lindsay of NAL Insurance.
Much of the money was raised through a charity draw at the NAL booth with prizes including a 42″ Samsung flat screen TV, Napoleon BBQ, round-trip airfare for two to any WestJet destination in Canada and more.
Ticket holders are asked to visit www. to see if they are a winner.
New this year, Trucking for Wishes and NAL Insurance sponsored the Family Fun Zone at the Fergus Truck Show. The Family Fun Zone was expanded to over five acres of space and was filled with amusement rides and fun family games brought in by Robertson Amusements.
“This was a great attraction for kids. The family rides and games added a lot of excitement to the show,” said Wayne Billings, chief operating officer of the Fergus Truck Show. A portion of the proceeds of the Family Fun Zone was donated to Make-A-Wish.
Also brand new this year, Kido TV will be filming all of the Trucking for Wishes major events. “The extra exposure on television will not only help Trucking for Wishes but it will also shed a positive light on the trucking industry as a whole,” Lindsay says.
