WISH Luncheon honors local fundraiser's

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A Make-A-Wish fundraiser luncheon took place in Cleveland Tuesday honoring those who've raised money to make dreams come true.

For the first time ever, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Northeast Ohio held a WISH Luncheon. WISH stands for Women Inspiring Strength & Hope.

Our own Cleveland 19 News Anchor Denise Dufala was honored to be the Mistress of Ceremonies for the event at the Union Club of Cleveland.


The charity honored 15 women who took it upon themselves to raise at least $8,000 to sponsor wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions.

The women honored today include Lynn Baird, Jenny Bonsky, Carmella Calta, Allison Clarke, Margot Copeland, Ella Fong, Debra Green, Alice Guiney, Bonnie Gwin, Renee Harvey, Kathleen Kmiecik, Jasmina Tadic, Andrea Vecchio, and Joanie Walker.

Their efforts will go a long way in helping Make-A-Wish.

Right now there are 180 children waiting to receive their wish.
