Thank you for attending the Wish Gala! Your support is crucial to changing kids' lives.

Together, we raised $1 Million to grant wishes to grant wishes that inspire to stay strong and fuel for further recovery. 

Take a look at the photos from the Wish Gala 2017!

Remember Jason?

As you helped reveal, Jason's wish will come true! He will get to go to New York City to celebrate not only the New Year and his 18thbirthday on January 1st but also the end of his eight-year medical treatment. What does he want to see and do? Everything! Jason will get to explore the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, wonderful museums, and do as New Yorkers do - eat at Katz's Deli on the Lower East Side. Most importantly, he will countdown the New Year and see the ball drop. You might think this is a fun trip. For Jason, it is much, much more. This wish experience will mark for him a new year, freedom from all burdens of treatment, fuel for further recovery, a new chapter...a new beginning. 

Jason just discovered that his one true wish is being granted by Make-A-Wish

Thank you for playing such a critical role in Jason's wish.  We can't make wishes come true without you.
