WISH 99.7


For more than 28 years, Pittsburgh radio station WISH 99.7 FM has donated air time for the Light Up A Child's Life® Campaign. The annual campaign is held each year during the month of December to help raise funds in order to grant wishes of special children living with life-threatening medical conditions. The first Light Up A Child's Life® Campaign was held in 1989 and raised more than $280,000. This year, the campaign, which also was broadcast in other cities in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, raised funds to fulfill more than 300 wishes! Since 2011, Make-A-Wish® TV, a live webcast, was added to expand its reach online.

We are very grateful for the incredible opportunity that WISH 99.7 FM provides for us so that we can continue to provide a magical experience to more than 700 Make-A-Wish® children each year.
