Kathleen Duffy Ybarra presents a check to Elizabeth Reich of Make-A-Wish Foundation of Arizona

Duffy Group and attendees from the 2011 AZ SHRM conference helped children with life-threatening illnesses see their wishes come true.

Throughout the conference attendees visited many vendors in the Exhibit Hall gathering tchotchkes and entering their names in drawings. A different opportunity was presented when they arrived at the Duffy Group booth. Kathleen Duffy Ybarra said, “AZ SHRM is committed to giving back to the community and we decided to follow their lead this year. For every conference attendee who visited our booth, a $10.00 donation was made in their name to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Arizona. We were thrilled to present Elizabeth Reich, CEO of Make-A-Wish Arizona with a check for over $1200.00!”

“We are grateful for the support of the Duffy Group,” Reich said. “Ongoing support from the community makes achieving our mission to grant wishes to Arizona children with life-threatening medical conditions a reality. We appreciate their generous donation.”

The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Arizona has granted more than 3,500 wishes to Arizona children. With more than 79% of every dollar donated is used directly to help grant wishes.
