Representatives from the Luxaire® Heating & Air Conditioning recently sponsored the Fourth Annual Runway Wishes Fashion Show, to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Kansas. Sources report $6,000 was raised, which included a $2,000 donation from Luxaire.

The show, highlighted new trends from Wichita boutiques and fashion outlets. Guests participated in a silent auction of jewelry, beauty items and spa packages.

"The event was fun, informative and made me want to give more," says Krista Gard, whose daughter Ayla will now be able to visit Walt Disney World® Resort. During the event’s intermission, Gard spoke about the Make-A-Wish Foundation's impact on her family and expressed thanks for such a beneficial event.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Kansas serves 99 of 105 counties in Kansas and grants about 65 wishes a year. Luxaire's sponsorship of the Make-A-Wish Foundation began in 2001 and has resulted in donations totaling more than $2 million.
