Arvest recently worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Missouri to sponsor the wish of 12-year-old Lillian from Springfield, Mo.


Lillian, or “Lilly” as her friends call her, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Despite her condition, Lilly has maintained a positive attitude and strong spirit. Lilly enjoys reading comic book novels, playing games and making art. 


Lilly’s wish is to go on a Disney Cruise, and Arvest is honored to be making her wish come true. 


During the month of December 2017, stop by any Springfield, Nixa, Branson, Branson West, Hollister, Aurora, Lebanon or Mountain Grove location to either buy a Make-A-Wish star or make a donation. All money raised will stay in our communities to help make local children’s wishes come true.


Lilly is one of many to make a wish. You can be one of many to make it come true!
