​DENVER – Alta Convenience, a division of Pester Marketing Company, is thanking loyal customers for their help in raising $60,017 during the Buy A Star, Make-A-Wish in-store donation campaign, which took place in November and December 2015, at all 57 Alta Convenience stores.

Alta Convenience also donated 10% from the sale of each cup of Alta premium coffee sold during the two-month period, in addition to the purchases of the Make-A-Wish Stars from the customers.

“We have just completed our third year of working with the Make-A-Wish foundation and I continue to be amazed at the generosity of our customers,” said Rich Spresser, president of Pester Marketing. “With our customers’ donations, we were able to raise over $60,000, which will end up funding eight wishes and help create a memory for these children with severe medical conditions. I also want to thank all the employees throughout the company who helped make this a success, particularly those employees that work behind the counter and interact with our customers every day. It was a great job done by all.”

Pester Marketing has worked with Make-A-Wish for the past three years and has raised a combined amount of $147,548 to fund 19 wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions.
