Our first raffle comes to you in partnership with the Fiesta Bowl Charities program “Wishes for Teachers”. Created in 2016 the program grants classroom wishes to teachers across the state of Arizona. Many teachers spend their own money to enhance their classroom experiences and the Wishes for Teachers program was developed to aid them in that effort. As a way to thank and honor Arizona educators, each fall teachers are invited to fill out an online application detailing their school and classroom wish. Wishes are selected by a random drawing to receive a $5,000 grant. All wish recipients are invited to walk in the Fiesta Bowl Parade and be recognized on-field at the Cactus Bowl. In its first two years, Wishes for Teachers granted over $1.2 million to Arizona teachers, impacting over 60,000 kids across the state.
