Thanks a Million! 

We are so incredibly honored to receive this special recognition from the Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area team. They awarded the Hyatt Hotels of the Bay Area the “Thanks a Million” award for our tournament raising over $1M in its 13 year history.   It was such an amazing moment and we thank you so much for your continued support.

About Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area


We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

Our Mission is to help raise the spirits of our Bay Area Make-A-Wish children. The Swing for Wishes golf tournament enables us to create hope, happiness and make a difference in each of their lives.


In 2006, Chicago Based Global Hyatt Corporation announced a worldwide partnership with Make-A-Wish® America, a global organization that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

The global partnership sparked collaboration between Hyatt Hotels of San Francisco and Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area. The resulting Swing for Wishes annual golf tournament and fundraiser has drawn in nearly 1,800 golf participants and has raised over $1,325,000 for Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area.
