CTE Breakfast Fundraiser Supports Make-A-Wish North Texas

Oct 20, 2014

Students Prepare Waffle ProStart culinary arts students at the Frisco ISD Career and Technical Education Center recently served up a delicious breakfast for a good cause.

The second annual “Waffles for Wishes” event supported Make-A-Wish North Texas, a charity that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Guests enjoyed made-to-order omelets, waffles and fresh fruit prepared by students in exchange for a donation. A silent auction with products and services donated by local businesses was also available.

The family of Chase Coolidge, a second grader at Borchardt Elementary School, was on hand to describe the impact of Make-A-Wish.

Chase, who suffers from a rare and serious genetic condition called trichothiodystrophy, had his wish to be a Frisco firefighter for a day granted in March 2014.

“It couldn’t be done without the support of you all,” Chase’s father Andy Coolidge told the crowd. “It really means a lot to us.”

In all, nearly $3,700 was collected to help grant the wish of a Frisco ISD student.  

Sponsors for the event included Sysco, which donated the food, and Ace Mart Restaurant Supply, which donated rental of the waffle irons, among other sponsors.
