The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation has contributed to Make-A-Wish for the last four years. On the Steelers website, Roethlisberger said that hearing about the kids who had their wishes granted last year as a result of his donation made supporting Make-A-Wish even more special.
"I got a packet and an envelope with a bunch of letters in it from Make-A-Wish kids whose wishes got granted,” said Roethlisberger on the Steelers website. “I could just see the smile on their faces as I was reading the letters. It means so much to me and my family and the foundation to be able to help out Make-A-Wish.
The Foundation has contributed $80,000 to Make-A-Wish to date through various ways, including golf outings and a casino event.
