Thomas E. “Dooley” Dewhirst never met a child that he didn’t like.
Friends say he had a heart of gold and a zest for life. All of this is clear given the legacy he left behind to help make wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Mr. Dewhirst named Make-A-Wish® Alaska and Washington in his will and as a result will ensure brighter tomorrows for many children in our territory. You can do the same by also making a planned gift.
By committing to a future gift, not only will you help to make wishes come true and experience the joy in knowing the impact your gift will have, but you can also benefit in other ways. For example, you can establish a charitable gift annuity through our chapter that will pay you guaranteed income for life, while also leaving a gift to support our work.
