Sunshine Health And Orange Bowl Help Make Wishes Come True

SUNRISE, Fla., Feb. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunshine Health, a subsidiary of Centene Corporation, partnered with the Orange Bowl at the City of Fort Lauderdale Orange Bowl Downtown Countdown on New Year's Eve to create a special graffiti wall with messages of hope and compassion for the Make-A-Wish Southern Florida.  The graffiti wall was presented to the Make-A-Wish Southern Florida today at their Broward County Walk for Wishes. The wall was unveiled and children in attendance were encouraged to leave special wishes on the wall for the Make-A-Wish children with life-threatening illnesses.

Sunshine Health commissioned Lindsey Vance of Washington, D.C. to design and complete the wall.  Vance is a Senior Art Therapist and Case Manager at Miriam's Kitchen D.C. who has worked in an array of community mental health settings as a Mental Health Clinician and Art Therapist.  She uses various mediums and some unconventional methods to heal, express, and give back through her artwork.

"Sunshine Health is pleased to present our graffiti wall of wishes to Make-A-Wish Southern Florida. We are so pleased to partner again with our friends at the Orange Bowl to create a community-led piece of artwork that can be shared with an organization that we are passionate about," said Chris Paterson, CEO, Sunshine Health.  "Through the graffiti wall, we hope these brave children will be lifted up and encouraged as they fight their courageous battle."

"Orange Bowl is a proud supporter of Make-A-Wish Southern Florida and we are delighted to join our partner Sunshine Health in the creation of the graffiti wall of wishes," said Eric Poms, CEO, Orange Bowl. "We have hosted Wish Kids at Discover Orange Bowls and the Discover BCS National Championship Game and it's rewarding to be able to bring a little joy into their lives at such a challenging time." 

Sunshine Health is a presenting sponsor of the Orange Bowl Health & Wellness Fair, which will be held April 5 at Sun Life Stadium.
