Jeff Coleman, President, Patill/St. James Insurance & The Children’s Wish Foundation.

Jeff Coleman is a part of the South Interlake Chapter of The Children’s Wish Foundation. Saturday, August 21st was their 22nd year of holding the Trail Ride and Family Fun Day at the Peltier Farm in Woodlands and the most successful year ever in terms of $$ raised…$69,000!!!!! With this year’s contribution, they are approaching $900,000… the best part of that is that annually they spend less than $250 to put the ride on. Every penny raised goes to granting wishes for children with life threatening diseases….literally everything that happens is donated… right from the local folks who let 150 to 200 horses ride through their back yards to the folks who donate enough corn, coleslaw, chicken, pork, buns, beans, ice-cream and auction items to get 825 people fed and on the edge of their seats during the auction. Of course the people who reach deep into their pockets for pledges of $$ help too.
