Make-A-Wish® of WNY grants wishes to children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions who live in the 17 counties surrounding the Buffalo and Rochester areas. A wish experience can be a game-changer to a child; Make-A-Wish® serves a unique, and vital role in helping strengthen and empower the children battling their life-threatening medical conditions. There are four steps to granting a wish; each step builds on the next and creates amazing experiences that delight wish kids and their families. Fundraising is an important step. The RYP Gala raises awareness and funds to the WNY area of Make-A-Wish® serves. Please find your way to be involved first-hand.
