Make-A-Wish Heroes & Helmets fundraiser takes place Wednesday

Deep pit lunch available outside KGET studios for $7

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - You can help make wishes come true for local critically ill children Wednesday, Nov. 1 outside our KGET studios.

Wednesday, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., is the annual Heroes & Helmets Fundraiser. 

The fundraiser started eight years ago by a local Make-A-Wish family bringing together local firefighters and kids for a one-day donation drive.

The fundraiser is taking place just outside our studios on 22nd and L streets. Along with helping local kids, you can enjoy a deep-pit sandwich lunch for $7. The "drive thru" lunch will be served from 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. outside our studios.

City and Kern County firefighters will also be collecting donations at the intersection of Stockdale Highway and Gosford Road and at the corner of Olive and Knudsen drives.

All money raised will stay in Kern County to help grant kids wishes.

Donate online by visiting the Make-A-Wish of Central California's website.
