Patti is passionate about fundraisers and events

Patti
As my 29th year at Make-A-Wish Colorado comes to an end and my 30th anniversary nears, I’ve spent some time reminiscing. I started with Make-A-Wish way back in April of 1986 and have never had a reason to leave. I love my job!

Latest Status Update

  • As we are rooting on our very own Colorado Rockies, we fondly remember all of the incredible wishes they have granted. For many wish kids, they travel from all over Colorado to meet their favorite players and even run the bases with their pinstriped heroes. The gleaming smiles, like Mason's, just prove that the players, coaches, and staff are our champions on and off the field. #wishesmatter
