Since 2003, West Virginia Oil Marketers & Grocers Association (OMEGA-WV) members have raised nearly $1.9 million for charities who improve the lives of West Virginia children, including Make-A-Wish. Its August campaign is officially kicking off - OMEGA member stores will be selling wish stars throughout the month to help make wishes come true. Wish kids Michael, Adam, Skye, Madison and Rylan helped kick off the OMEGA campaign at the Par Mar in Parkersburg and Huttonsville, One Stop in Charleston, WV, the Little General Store in MacArthur and the Go Mart in Clarksburg. A golf outing was also held at Glade Springs Resort in Daniels, WV.
