Wings For Wishes (WFW) was founded in February of 2011 by Eric Kendall. The inspiration for Wings For Wishes is a young man by the name of Dylan Levy. His father, Noah Levy was a classmate of Eric's wife. Little Dylan was diagnosed with BA (a sick liver) at a young age. Long story short, in the winter if 2010 Make-A-Wish stepped in and made Dylan's wish of wanting to see snow come true. Eric was moved by what Make-A-Wish did for Dylan and his family, and Eric wanted so bad to do his part and help Make-A-Wish Foundation grant more wishes like Dylan, Thus the birth of Wings For Wishes. Please feel free to read more about Dylan Levy through the link at the bottom of this page. Wings For Wishes is an annual fun fly event held in Polson Montana to benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation Of Montana, with the unique design of the event 100% profit/proceeds are donated. In other words, every dime that comes in to the event goes to Make-A-Wish Foundation Of Montana.
We raise money for the foundation through several different ways at this event:
When Pilots come to the fun fly they pay a landing fee, Raffle tickets are sold for various items such as gift certificates, glues/ epoxies, T-shirts etc. as well as the silent bid for the auction items. We also have a BBQ with hamburgers, hot dogs, drinks, etc.
