On Make-A-Wish Monday, the organization celebrates its successes in 2016. Through the generous support of the community, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada was able to touch the lives of over 100 wish kids and their families.

Here are a few magical moments from 2016:

  • Our Walk for Wishes presented by Caesars Foundation broke records, raising over $400,000.
  • Together with UFC, we revealed to wish kid Gage that his wish to go to Walt Disney World was coming true.
  • Allegiant Travel Company announced their donation of office space for 5 years on World Wish Day.
  • Wish Kid Connie's wish to be a Las Vegas V.I.P. came true due to the support of the Venetian Las Vegas (Sands Cares).
  • Wish Kid Trinity received a new backyard thanks to Steelhead productions.
  • In partnership with iHeart Radio and KSNV, our first ever Wishes in Flight brought in over 1.2 million airline miles and $36,000.
  • Wish Kid Ashley wished for the shopping spree of her dreams … and it came true with the help of Macy's, Game Stop and other Fashion Show Mall stores.
  • Our 15th Annual Fashion Show luncheon raised over $380,000 and Wish Kid Kaila stole the hearts of all in attendance.
