DuBois, PA – The Sykesville Eagles are challenging YOU to raise even more money this year for Make-A-Wish! The club donated a full wish, $4,400!

The Sykesville Eagles wants to see all of the other clubs doing their best to raise more wishes to make the dreams of local kids come true.

Vic Kosko came in to present the money to the Greater PA and WV Make-A-Wish. The donation of $4,400 is enough to pay for the average wish of a local child. Vic Kosko, Jeff Pisarcik, and the rest of the members of the Sykesville Eagles challenge you to dig deep this year and help Make-A-Wish meet their goal!

Listen to the full interview with Make-A-Wish regional manager Lindsey Herzing and Vic Kosko from Sykesville Eagles.

Throughout the week, we’ve been hearing the stories of the kids and the families helped by Make-A-Wish for our 25th Annual Light Up a Child’s Life campaign in DuBois!

Rick Wean is the father Dakota and Cheyenne, both of whom received wishes when they were younger for genetic heart conditions. Their entire family comes back year after year to explain how important it is to donate and to provide these memories for kids who are sick.

Listen to the full interview with the Crook-Wean family about how Make-A-Wish helped them during one of the most difficult times in their lives.

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

Some kids wish for vacations, to redecorate their rooms, for pets, to meet one of their heroes or anything that they could dream of. It’s about more than just one day of fun… these memories last a lifetime and can truly make a difference.

Keep listening all this week on Sunny 106 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.

Listen to the full Contact Show with Joe Taylor, interviewing Lindsey Herzing and Lacy Bair of our regional Make-A-Wish team.
