The Power of a Wish

| August 17, 2018 << Back

Once again, Ski Portillo hosted Make-a-wish Chile for a week. Since 1980, this foundation has been helping children with high-risk illnesses making their wish for health come true. It has become the largest organization worldwide of this kind with a presence in fifty countries.

This season, the results from the fundraising week surpassed all expectations with activities including a benefit ski race, auctions and a raffle. The strong participation from our international guests who are familiar with the efforts of this international organization fulfilled the dreams of many children as well as raising awareness amongst others.

We are grateful for the participation of the Portillo guests and staff. With their help, Make-a-Wish can continue to make kids dreams come true, filling their lives with hope, strength and joy. All the proceeds go directly to a dream fund, which fulfills more than160 wishes each year that impact children’s lives with hope.

We are proud to host this event at Portillo and spread the spirit of solidarity.

During August, the foundation will be working on their new campaign “Wish Dish, the dish of dreams that fills your heart” where over 30 associated restaurants will donate a percentage of all meals sold to continue to raise funds. The more meals enjoyed, the more wishes that will come true.
