Our partner Make-A-Wish Metro and Western New York grants an average of one wish every 10 hours. This June, there are several ways to help them grant even more wishes! The 18th Annual Tournament of Wishes is coming up in June, but if you can’t attend, there are still ways that you can make a difference. Donating airline miles, making an in-kind donation, or donating a car to Wheels For Wishes will all help Make-A-Wish Metro and Western New York grant more wishes, which bring more hope, strength, and joy to children who are facing critical illnesses.
