Get $700 off a swim spa and help give a hot tub to Make-A-Wish®!
Independence, Ore. — In celebration of helping grant 700 wishes through Make-A-Wish®, Marquis® is offering $700 off an Aquatic Training Vessel™ (ATV™) during the month of April. In addition, for every 3 ATV™s sold during the month, Marquis® will donate a Wish Hot Tub to local Make-A-Wish chapters for fundraising or wish granting purposes.
"Hot tubs, with their relaxing and restorative properties, tend to be a popular wish request for wish kids throughout the country, and we thank Marquis® and its customers for helping us grant hot tub wishes,” said David A. Williams, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. "Because of the support from the Spirit of a Wish campaign, we are able to bring the powerful benefits of a wish-come-true to more children with life-threatening medical conditions nationwide."
Marquis®’ In the Spirit of a Wishprogram was inspired by a girl named Andrea over a decade ago. When Make-A-Wish approached Marquis® about helping to grant Andrea’s wish in 2000, the company was more than eager to help. Her wish inspired Marquis® to help with similar wishes. So far the sponsorship has generated more than $3 million in donations and discounts for Make-A-Wish. Marquis® dealers nationwide are involved in granting wishes. Please visit www.marquisspas.com to download the coupon and for details surrounding the campaign.
John Schrenk, President of Marquis®, agrees that working with wish children is extremely gratifying. "It’s incredibly rewarding that through our hot tubs and swim spas, we are able to add some happiness and improve the wellbeing of so many children with life-threatening medical conditions," says Schrenk. "I speak on behalf of all Marquis® employee-owners when I say we feel privileged and honored to be able to enhance the lives of these children. It feels wonderful to see our spas create a sanctuary for the wish kids and their families."
