The Make-A-Wish Foundation® and SafeAuto are proud to present the Second Annual BIG Wish Gala that will take place May 22 in Columbus, Ohio at Ohio Stadium. The event will feature country music superstars and Columbus natives Rascal Flatts.
Since 1983, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Central Ohio region has granted more than 1,362 wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Several SafeAuto employees have been touched by the effects of children with life-threatening conditions. This hits close to home since Make-A-Wish child Reagyn is the niece of SafeAuto’s Vice President of Media. She has a brain tumor and was granted a Disney Cruise as her wish in 2006.
The goal of the BIG Wish Gala Event is to help raise money for kids like Reagyn. The evening will also feature a chance to experience Ohio Stadium like never before. Attendees will have the opportunity to take a tethered hot air balloon ride from inside the stadium and enjoy a stunning view of the gala and The Ohio State University campus.
Last year the event raised more than $840,000 and the goal for this year is set to raise $1 million to make wishes come true for local children.
