Local Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington Kids on Ice for Wenatchee Wild Game


March 17, 2015


Wenatchee, WA


Kylie wished to go to Hawaii, and Anthony wished to go to his favorite theme park. Meet these two and 20 other local Make-A-Wish kids this Saturday at the Wenatchee Wild game. The wish families will attend as VIPs and will appear on the ice at the second intermission. These festivities kick off Wenatchee Wish Week, a dedicated weeklong effort to showcase local wish kids and to raise airline miles for local kids who have not yet received a wish. 


Saturday, March 21 at 7 p.m. Wish families attend the game and will be out on the ice at approximately 8:15 p.m. for the second intermission. Pre or post-game interviews can be arranged.


More than 75 percent of local wishes involve travel. You can help make wishes like Kylie's come true by donating unused airline miles at no cost to you. To donate airline miles, visit or call 509.458.2618.

About Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington:

Since 1986, Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington has granted wishes to more than 5,600 children, nearly 1,000 of whom are from Eastern Washington, with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can influence the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Currently, there are more than 400 children awaiting their wishes and there are more who qualify for our services, yet we are unable to reach them and grant their wishes due to a lack of funds and capacity. In fact, every year, one in four seriously-ill children in Alaska and Washington do not receive a wish because of a lack of funding.
