Make-A-Wish® Iowa Honors Matt Prickett of Mount Pleasant


January 28, 2015



Make-A-Wish® Iowa recently released the names of their annual award winners and Matt Prickett of Mount Pleasant was recognized as the top volunteer for the Burlington/Southeast Iowa area committee.

“Since the time he joined, he is always willing to help and do whatever is needed to see our committee succeed!,” said Diane Roelfs, local committee chair. “He has been at every fundraiser we've held faithfully doing whatever he can...and he does it in such a happy and humble way!  He has a huge heart for our wish kids and is a great representative of what Make-A-Wish stands for!  We love having Matt as part of our committee!”

The Burlington area committee meets on a monthly basis and varying locations. Their group primarily focuses on granting wishes in the southeast area of the state.

“We’re proud of our entire committee in the Burlington area,” said Chris Voggesser, CEO of Make-A-Wish Iowa. “Matt deserves recognition for his efforts to help make our presence known in this area of the state so we can grant more wishes.”

Make-A-Wish Iowa granted 153 wishes in their last fiscal year and anticipate granting 185 in our current year – that’s about a wish every other day.
