IPAC names Make A Wish Central & South Texas its February 2017 Extra Mile Award winner

SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Each month, Ingram Park Auto Center (IPAC) proudly names an organization or individual that goes beyond the call of duty to improve the lives of people across San Antonio through the IPAC Extra Mile Award program. The program's February 2017 winner is Make A Wish Central & South Texas. The organization has dedicated itself to granting wishes for children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions.

Since the Central & South Texas chapter's inception, it has been able to provide over 4,000 children with their ultimate wishes. The organization operates at a grassroots level, which means that it relies on the kindness of those around the community to share their time, financial donations, and talents with the Make A Wish Foundation and its wish makers.

Through fundraising events like the upcoming inaugural Walk for Wishes, the organization is able to raise awareness and funds that contribute to making wishes come true for children throughout San Antonio and surrounding areas. The next Walk for Wishes takes place on April 30, 2017 at Morgan's Wonderland. Registration opens at 3:00 p.m. with the event starting at 4:00 p.m. Teams from across the city will be walking to raise money and fulfill wishes for as many children as possible.

In honor of Make A Wish Central & South Texas being named IPAC's February Extra Mile Award winner, the dealership is donating $1,000 to the organization's efforts. IPAC offers its sincerest gratitude to Make A Wish and encourages interested participants to visit the foundation's website here.

To nominate a San Antonio-based person or group for IPAC's Extra Mile Award program, guests can visit the dealership online at www.ipacauto.com or call 855-486-6568.
