Pocatello, Idaho: In 2022, Rumors Pub raised $19,000 for Make-A-Wish Idaho through a series of fundraising events, including a live auction, a raffle, a scavenger hunt, a golf tournament and various other mini-events and specials. The money will be used to grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses. Rumors has raised over $125,000 for Make-A-Wish Idaho since 2010.

“I think that the Make-A-Wish mission is wonderful,” said Kris Miner, the owner of Rumors. “These kids have to go through so much, and I am so glad that we can help.”

Miner became involved with Make-A-Wish Idaho when she took over the business about a decade ago. The previous owner had supported Make-A-Wish Idaho and suggested (along with a Rumors employee) to Miner that she do the same. Today, the Rumors fundraising committee is composed of ten people— Patty Koger, Diane Hulet, Kim Crowder, Rachel Griffith, Mary Frayer, Laura Crawford, Susan Matkin, Doug Crawford, Roxanne Bidwell, Brooke Agado, Kylie Vanorden, Kaye Hook—who each have their own job: setting up the raffles or the scavenger hunt or working at a specific event.

“We are so grateful for Rumors Pub, Kris Miner and all the big-hearted women and men on the fundraising committee. We estimate that because of their support, we’ve been able to grant over 15 life-changing wishes to Idaho children facing critical illnesses. We can’t thank them enough for all their hard work,” said Julie Thomas, Make-A-Wish Idaho Regional Director.

Rumors Pub is located at 2227 Garrett Way in Pocatello.
