Best Philanthropic Initiative
Make-A-Wish® Polen Capital Golf Tournament
The Make-A-Wish Foundation and its mission are deeply ingrained in the hearts and minds of each member of the Polen Capital community. Stan Moss, CEO of Polen Capital and former Make-A-Wish Southern Florida board member, designed the golf tournament based on his desire to mobilize colleagues and to engage the entire Polen network in an active fundraising campaign that would have a powerful and lasting impact on the community at large.
To date, the Polen Capital Make-A-Wish Golf Tournament has raised over $1.9 million and granted nearly 400 wishes to deserving children and their families. Now in its ninth year, the 2022 tournament exceeded our goals and set a new record as our most successful campaign ever in terms of total fundraising and overall engagement.
After 9 successful years, the Make-A-Wish Polen Capital Golf Tournament has become one of our signature events.
—Kevin Fantis, Development Manager at Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida
