TAMUNING, Guam—Atkins Kroll donated $1,914 to Make-A-Wish Foundation Guam & CNMI through its Community Matters program with a check presentation last Friday, Jan. 20, in the AK Toyota showroom. The proceeds will contribute to Make-A-Wish’s upcoming fundraiser, Bow Ties for Wishes—a special event that will feature a live and silent auction of luxury and vintage watches donated by the late Dr. Chris Perez, a long-term board member of Make-A-Wish Foundation Guam & CNMI.

“We at Atkins Kroll are pleased to donate to Make-A-Wish’s Bow Ties for Wishes event. The mission of Make-A-Wish is one that touches the hearts of all of us at AK and to commemorate Dr. Perez as an integral member of the Guam and CNMI chapter is a true honor. There are no words to relay the gratitude we feel in taking part in bringing some light into our children’s lives when they need it most,” said Trina Cruz, AK Marketing and Communications director.

“We are grateful for the support that AK has given us with this donation. As we celebrate 35 years of granting wishes to the children of Guam and the CNMI, every dollar counts in helping us achieve our mission,” said Eric Tydingco, Make-A-Wish Foundation Guam & CNMI president and CEO.

Make-A-Wish Foundation Guam & CNMI is a non-profit organization that, for over 35 years, has delivered wishes to children with critical illnesses in its region. To learn more, please visit
