Mason’s Wish

Mason’s Wish is the fundraising campaign of Mason Wolfe, whose father has been battling cancer since 2007. She and her mom Nancy sell candles and other items, and partner with Western States Fire Protection on a golf tournament, to raise money for our center. In 2009, at only 12 years of age, she made her first donation of $11,000! They have raised more than $100,000 for the center as of fall 2017! She has won awards recognizing her charitable service, including the Everyday Hero Award presented by Denver Channel 7 (video below). Read more about the Wolfes in our 2014 Conquest magazine.
