Hankook Supports MLB Make-A-Wish Efforts

July 11, 2023

Working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Hankook Tire North America helped host five young fans during 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star Week.

"They included Evan (14) from North Caldwell, N.J.; Legend (14) from Carmichael, Calif.; Gabriel (15) from San Leandro, Calif.; Jacob (17) from Leominster, Mass.; and Jack (17) from Stanley, N.D.," say Hankook officials.

"Their experiences included a Make-A-Wish welcome reception, access to PLAY BALL Park; tickets to the MLB draft; and a suite to watch the primetime events at T-Mobile Park. Hankook has generously underwritten MLB’s expenses for the welcome reception and the VIP suite."

“All-Star Week is a special moment for all baseball fans and we wanted to take this opportunity to enable MLB to deliver an unforgettable experience for these incredible young fans,” says Rob Williams, president, Hankook Tire America Corp.

“We’re proud to work with MLB in its support of Make-A-Wish and hope that this week lights up the summer for Evan, Legend, Gabriel, Jacob and Jack.”
