"On behalf of the wish kids we serve and their families, we are so thankful for the generous support of Colgate and everyone who participated in the "A Wish for a Swish" event," said David Williams, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. "Thank you to those who attended today's record attempt and to the consumers who continue to upload smiles online. Because of your help, we'll be able to create many more smiles on the faces of wish kids around the country."
