From mid-May and throughout June, residents of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana have a number of great ways to help Make-A-Wish. Whether you choose to take part in all of these fun events, only take part in the events in your state, or decide that you cannot attend any of the events and choose to donate a car to Wheels For Wishes instead, your contribution can have a huge impact in the life of a Wish Kid. Check out all of the great events in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana to register today.
Our partner, Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana, is a great organization that has helped more than 12,000 children receive their wishes since its inception in 1983. Children with critical illnesses who receive a wish, receive a gift that can be a game-changer. You can help be a part of the magic of a wish by attending an event or donating to Make-A-Wish. Join in the fun and experience the power of a wish by giving this summer.
Start Your Summer With The Norton Commons Charity Home Celebration
The Norton Commons Charity Home Celebration will take place May 10, beginning at 12 p.m. and will continue throughout the month of May, until May 25 at 8 p.m. The celebration features twelve homes for ten charities, including our partner Make-A-Wish located in Prospect, Ky. The event brings awareness to each charity and helps to raise funds for their missions. By taking the tour, you can raise money for your charity of choice, including Make-A-Wish! After you have completed your tour of the 12 homes, vote for your favorite home. The house with the most votes at the end of the event earns extra funds for their charity – so be sure to vote for the Make-A-Wish house! Tickets are just $15 apiece. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the Norton Commons Charity Homes Celebration website.
