A Wish Come True: Elmhurst Boys raise $20,000 to help children with life threatening illnesses


WARWICK — On June 4, The Elmhurst Boys of St. Pius V Church, Providence, held their seventh annual charity golf tournament to benefit “A Wish Come True” in Rhode Island. A Wish Come True grants wishes and provides resources to families with a child, 3-18 years of age, living in Rhode Island or Southeastern Massachusetts. From this special event, $20,000 was raised to help children in need.
The Elmhurst Boys is a faith-based group of individuals who share similar interests and concerns for the community and those in need. Community, friendship, commitment and charity: These four words summarize what’s at the heart of their mission of giving back through volunteering, fundraising and making charitable contributions. Since 1995, the group has helped raise more than $400,000 through volunteer work and event planning for the Elmhurst community at-large.
From pancake breakfasts to benefit “Keep the Heat On,” the diocesan heating assistance program; to preparing hot meals for men at Emmanuel House, the diocesan homeless shelter; to raising thousands for families at Christmastime; the Elmhurst Boys never cease to help others. In 2020, The Elmhurst Boys received a Lumen Gentium Award in Community Service & Charitable Outreach.
