Introducing…The Thomas R. McGehee Society
Named for the founder of Dreams Come True, The Thomas R. McGehee Society is composed of individuals who believe it is imperative that future generations of children battling life-threatening illnesses will continue achieving their dreams.
Through their generosity, The Thomas R. McGehee Society members are the foundation upon which Dreams Come True builds for both today and tomorrow. Membership in The Thomas R. McGehee Society is obtained by providing a planned gift to Dreams Come True.

Sponsor an Event
Individuals and businesses in our community work diligently to raise money to sponsor the dreams of local children. The majority of this support is in the form of a special event. If you are interested in providing financial support or an in-kind donation to assist in raising funds at a third party event or one of Dreams Come True’s Signature events then please contact Community Relations Manager Andrea Siracusa at (904) 296-3030 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Any support that can be provided to a fundraising event is very important in the ability to raise money to sponsor dreams.
Host a Fundraiser
Businesses interested in sponsoring a child’s dream can provide their support through employee activities, such as bake sales, festivals, or other fundraising activities. Companies may also sponsor a dream through just a company donation. As a dream sponsor, you will be able to meet the child whose dream you sponsor through a Celebration of Life dream party held at our Dreams Come True office.This dream party is when the child is formally presented with the dream packet, which includes the itinerary, spending money and other dream details. The party is a wonderful opportunity for you to meet your dream child and hear all about the amazing things you have made possible!Dreams Come True applies 100% of all third party event contributions directly toward a child’s dream.
