Now in its 17th year, the Truck Convoy for Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish®, has become a tradition with local truckers and trucking companies to raise money through pledges to support local children living with critical illnesses.
Our first convoy in 2001, featured 18 trucks, 12 wish children, and raised approximately $6,000. Last year's event raised $158,000, reaching it's $1 million milestone! Over the past 16 years, this great event has helped grant 270 wishes to local wish kids.
Hundreds of shiny trucks will roll into Gettysburg for this annual event. The day's activities include rides, games, food vendors, kid's safety programs and raffles. Cost to enter a truck is $75. For more details regarding entering your truck or attending the event, please contact Sherri Keller at (717) 818-9411 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure to check out the other two events taking place during the Convoy Weekend -- the 6th Annual Jerry Gordon Memorial Golf Tournament on May 4, and the 9th Annual Convoy Kickoff Motorcycle Ride on May 5.
