Lynne Tarman of Alliance Financial Group, host for the event, has selected Michael Kochis and Jerry Hemmer of Alliance Financial along with Debra Watson, RHU of Rogers Benefit Group to be part of the panel.

Make-A-Wish Southern Florida is participating in a series of Friend Raisers throughout the year to bring their message and the message of other important topics to the community.

“It was my pleasure to host a recent Friend Raiser for Make-A-Wish in May. It gave me the opportunity to meet several new business people and to introduce several of my clients to Make-A-Wish. Many of them have now found ways to become involved with this great charity,” said Christi Geib of the Referral Institute. “I feel it was a win-win for everyone – Make-A-Wish and Referral Institute and I will undoubtedly do it again because I feel it’s important to share the Make-A-Wish story with as many people as possible.”
