Our philanthropic efforts go beyond charitable donations. From 2005 thru 2013, Wish Farms hosted an annual Pro-Am Tennis Tournament, which raised over $600,000 in 8 years. Funds from the annual Pro-Am were donated to two very worthy causes: University of South Florida Wishnatzki Family Migrant Scholarship Fund and Redlands Christian Migrant Association.
The goal of the fellowship is to help develop leaders and improve educational opportunities for migrant children. The scholarship is awarded to a USF student from a migrant or seasonal farm worker family who is pursuing a graduate degree in education at the USF College of Education.
Wish Farms has turned the focus from the tennis courts to the strawberry fields. We now host an annual Strawberry Picking Challenge charity event each February during the Florida season. All proceeds, are donated to the children at Redlands Christian Migrant Association (RCMA); a Florida nonprofit that provides quality childcare and early education for children of migrant farm workers and rural low-income families. In 2015, the event donated $76,000 to RCMA.
We are proud members of the fresh produce industry and agricultural community. Wish Farms believes that being an industry leader, means taking an active approach to help educate consumers, retailers, and law makers. Through communication and agritourism, we can work together to feed the world.
