DuBois, PA – Today kicks off Make-A-Wish week with the 24th Annual Light Up a Child’s Life campaign in DuBois!

Make-A-Wish grants magical wishes to children dealing with life-threatening illnesses, allowing them to forget about their medical conditions and just be a kid.

Lindsey Herzing, the Make-A-Wish regional manager, explains the wishes are about so much more than the cost of a vacation. It’s about the experience. Because Make-A-Wish grants so many wishes, they’re able to do it in a special way, offering a little extra magic that kids will never forget.

Some kids wish for vacations, to redecorate their rooms, for pets, to meet one of their heroes or anything that they could dream of.

Keep listening all week to hear the stories of Make-A-Wish families!

You can make a donation at our radio station offices at 12 West Long Avenue in DuBois all week long or give us a call at 814-372-1065, and don’t forget to bid on the auction items, happening live this Friday!

You can help raise money to grant a magical wish for local children, allowing them to have a special day, forget their worries and enjoy just being a kid.
