Annual Stories of Light

Nov. 24-Dec. 31

Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Northern Florida's 13th Annual Stories of Light.


Make-A-Wish of Central and Northern Florida's 13th Annual Stories of Light holiday campaign will take place between November 24th and December 31st. The campaign is our signature media-awareness fundrasier where we team up with local media to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Our goal is to raise $ 220,000 to grant a total of 31 wishes! We are partnering with WESH 2 News and for the first time with Mix 105.1 FM and Wachovia Bank.

Beginning November 24th, the central Florida community will be encouraged to help fund a child's wish by making a donation at their lovcal Wachovia Bank, going online to, or calling 407-622-4673. During the month of December, WESH 2 News and Mix 105.1 will share with the community inspiring stories of courageous wish children. Tune in to WESH 2 News each Friday to watch Jim Payne share a heartfelt story of a child who was recently granted his or her wish.

The week of December 15, Mix 105.1 FM's Scott and Erica Morning Show will air a wish story each morning, leading up to an all day 'request-a-thon' on Friday, December 19th. From 7 am-7pm, listeners will have the opportunity to request any song they like and hear it on the radio by making a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Northern Florida.
