About Our Philanthropy

Beta holds their annual 'Beta Bull Ride' in Dunn Meadow during the spring. The event features live music, delicious food and a mechanical bull, raising money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Organization

Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation's mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities. The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 after a little boy named Chris Greicius realized his heartfelt wish to become a police officer. Since its humble beginnings, the organization has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon, reaching more than 250,000 children around the world.
