Thank you to all who donated, sponsored, stopped in to visit the new “studio” space at Eastern Hills Mall and volunteered at our 24th annual Make-A-Wish Radiothon! Because of you, over $120,000 was raised to grant life-changing wishes for children here in our Western New York Community.
The funds raised will go directly towards helping children with critical illnesses replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope. It will give them a different form of treatment to help them heal and give them an edge in conquering their illness.
A huge thank you to 97Rock for once again letting Make-A-Wish share powerful stories of lives forever changed by the power of a wish. The incredible 97Rock talent proudly and passionlessly informed listeners on why wishes help children look beyond their pain and difficult treatments and give them hope. Wishes allow children to see the seemingly impossible become possible. For critically-ill children, wishes can be as powerful as medicine.
Special thanks to National Grid, Kaleida Health, Eastern Hill Mall and Vaspian who made the event’s success possible.
On behalf of all the children and families Make-A-Wish serves, THANK YOU. Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
