Make-A-Wish®Western New York granted 174 wishes in fiscal year 2016 to children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions who live in the 17 counties surrounding the Buffalo and Rochester areas. 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.
In September of 2011, Make-A-Wish Metro New York and Make-A-Wish Western New York joined forces, now serving a total of 23 counties in the State of New York.
