BENEFITING: MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION OF CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
ORGANIZER: MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION OF CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
EVENT DATE: Sep 18, 2016
Originally from Southern California, Robert has resided in Fresno for the past 13 years. His journey to the central valley was encouraged by a career with the fire department. Robert has served the city and its citizens for over twelve years, and currently holds the position of Fire Captain. Before joining the fire department, Robert was once a member of the United States Marine Corps, serving honorably all over the world.
Robert is a loving father who has three children (two boys and a girl), who are the center of his world. There is never a dull moment around them because they always know how to keep him busy.
Robert returned for his second year as a Shoe Guy for Wine Women & Shoes because he appreciates the wonderful things Make-A-Wish does, not only for the children, but for their families as well. He believes it to be a great organization to stand behind.
Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. The Central California chapter was founded in 1986, Make-A-Wish Central California chapter has granted over 2,000 wishes and serves eight counties: Fresno, Madera, Merced, Mariposa, Kern, Kings, Tulare and Inyo. We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
