We were thrilled to present Grant funds to Make-A-Wish Suffolk County, NY.  Our Grant funds will be used to support their program of granting wishes to children between the ages of 2 ½ and 18 with critical illnesses.  These wishes provide children with more than just a great experience.  Granting a wish helps children feel stronger, empowered to take back control of their lives and more willing to comply with difficult treatments.  For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses.
