Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada is the local chapter of the nonprofit Make-A-Wish Foundation in Las Vegas that helps critically sick children in the community by granting wishes that will have a lasting impact on their lives. When children are diagnosed with a serious illness, it can be devastating news for them and their families. In order to inspire positivity, improve their outlook, and put smiles on their faces, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada works with thousands of volunteers, donors, and supporters to make their wishes come true.
This local charity makes a difference at the community level to change the lives of sick children across the Las Vegas area. Since being established in 1996, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada has granted over 2,000 wishes to sick children and hosts nearly 40 children every year from other states and countries who travel to Las Vegas to meet their favorite celebrity or performer. Overall, Make-A-Wish understands that children who have their wishes granted build the physical and emotional strength needed to fight their illnesses. Make-A-Wish continues to help improve the quality of life for sick children through their ongoing mission in Southern Nevada.
