VIP's Executive Chairman and Owner John Quirk matched that contribution, making the total gift $164,517.

“Once again, the VIP team is proud to support Make-A-Wish, and all the Wish Kids who benefit from this wonderful foundation,” says Tim Winkeler, VIP’s president and CEO. “Our people really get behind initiatives like this that help change lives for the better. We look forward to supporting Make-A-Wish and other philanthropic organizations for years to come.”
