Where wishes have a place to call home
The Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina Wishing Place is the only one of its kind. It provides an environment that is free of limitations, confinement, and stress. It stimulates the imagination and reveals to local children the imaginative possibilities of a wish.
Children often come to Make-A-Wish® at a frightening time in their lives. It’s a time when playing, learning, and laughing is all too often replaced with uncertainty, hospital visits and medical treatments. Based especially on the fact that so often a child’s imagination is limited and stifled by their illness or environment, we sought to create our own permanent space.
We will forever be grateful to all who have made this magical building possible. For surely, we know, it is a place to rekindle the inner spirits of all wish children who pass through these halls.
