Make-A-Wish has helped grant thousands of wishes and you can celebrate those granted wishes by taking part in the Evening of Wishes Gala at the Locust Hill Country Club (2000 Jefferson Road) in Pittsford, NY, March 15. The Evening of Wishes Gala is the largest fundraising event of the year for Make-A-Wish Western and Metro New York and includes silent and live auctions, dinner, music, the opportunity to meet wish families, and more. This year’s Gala Chairman is Dave Mammano, CEO of Next Step Education Group who has supported Make-A-Wish throughout the year.

Make Wishes Come True By Taking Part In This Year’s Gala

Our partner, Make-A-Wish Metro and Western New York, is one of the most active chapters in all of the United States, averaging a wish granted every ten hours! They are determined to grant every wish possible each and every year. Wishes granted provide children in Rochester, Buffalo, and New York City with the inspiration to move forward and a much needed break from their critical illness. The Gala is a great way to help grant wishes, since all of the funds raised at the Gala will help Make-A-Wish reach their goals.

Continue To Give And Help Grant Wishes

If your schedule is busy and you are unable to attend the Evening of Wishes Gala, there are still other ways you can help Make-A-Wish grant wishes. Make-A-Wish accepts many different types of donations throughout the year. If you have extra airline miles, you can donate those to help grant wishes in your community. You can make a general donation or sponsor a Wish Kid and help them have the most spectacular day of their life. You can get involved at work or even just volunteer to spend your own time making a wish as perfect as possible.

Possibly the easiest way to help grant a wish is just to cross something off your “to-do” list. If you have been looking to sell your unwanted car or upgrade to a better version of your current car, consider car donation! Car donation is a great alternative to selling your used vehicle. Instead of worrying about how your car is running, placing expensive ads online and in the newspaper, and spending your valuable time trying to find a buyer, make the call to Wheels For Wishes and we will pick-up or tow away your car for free.

Even if you don’t know how to donate a car, Wheels For Wishes will make the process simple and easy. All you have to do is call 1-877-431-9474 or fill out an online donation form. Our experienced car donation representatives will walk you through the process and answer any questions you might have. After your car has been picked up, you will receive a tax deductible receipt in the mail which you can use to receive the maximum possible tax deduction for your donation. There has never been a better time to help make a difference in your community. Help Make-A-Wish and help yourself by making a donation to Wheels For Wishes.
