Cardinals Family Help Make Wishes Come True
The Cardinals Family has a longstanding partnership with Make-A-Wish® Missouri & Kansas, working closely with the nonprofit each year to fund raise and grant wishes to children in need.
Since 2011, the Wives have raised over $1 Million, which has granted more than 200 life-changing wishes for local kids battling life-threatening medical conditions through their annual fundraising event: Cardinals Wives for Wishes.
While the 2020 and 2021 events were postponed due to health and safety concerns, preparations are already underway for the 10th annual event in 2022. Stay tuned for more information.
Cardinals Wives for Wishes
Since 2011, the Cardinals Family has hosted the Cardinals Wives for Wishes fundraiser event at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar to benefit Make-A-Wish Missouri & Kansas. The 2019 event found the Wives, players and guests boogieing down and singing karaoke favorites at a disco-themed event that raised funds to grant wishes for local children battling life-threatening medical conditions.

In 2017, the Cardinals Wives (now known as the Cardinals Family) were named winners of the 2017 Chris Greicus Celebrity Award by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The national award is presented annually to someone in the sports and entertainment community who goes above and beyond in wish-granting and supporting the life-affirming mission of Make-A-Wish.
