EVENT DATE: Sep 18, 2016
Mike was born and raised in Fresno, where he still lives and works as the President of White Ruffy Seafood, Inc. This is his second year as a Shoe Guy.
When he is not working, Mike enjoys playing golf, practicing martial arts, going to the gym and going to the movies with his wife, Lisa. Before his career with White Ruffy Seafood, Inc., Mike was a karate instructor.
Mike recently celebrated 30 years of marriage. Each year, he and Lisa travel to Hawaii, which is their favorite vacation destination. This was where he proposed to Lisa, and they have gone back to the islands every year since then!
Mike has donated to Make-A-Wish for many years; he loves being a part of an organization that grants wishes to children and brings so much happiness. Since he doesn’t have children of his own, he loves being involved and giving back to kids in any way he can.
Join Mike in his goal of supporting Make-A-Wish for the second year!
Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. The Central California chapter was founded in 1986, Make-A-Wish Central California chapter has granted over 2,000 wishes and serves eight counties: Fresno, Madera, Merced, Mariposa, Kern, Kings, Tulare and Inyo. We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
