PG&E has announced that employees from its Diablo Canyon power plant raised more than $17,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation at the 19th annual Nuclear Challenge Golf Tournament.

More than 200 PG&E employees and volunteers — including longtime sponsors such as Westinghouse and Areva — took part in the tournament to benefit the foundation’s tri-counties chapter.

“The support we have been provided goes a long way in helping Make-A-Wish fulfill the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Without the great effort of groups like PG&E our wish-granting work would just not be possible,” said Pattie Mullins, CEO of Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties.
