CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The BIG Wish Gala was Thursday, April 3, 2014 at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Center.

The family of honorary wish kid, Riley, attended to share with guests details of how his wish has impacted their entire family. In 1999, at the time his wish was granted, he was fighting a brain tumor and the event made his wish of meeting the Cleveland Indians come true. 

"A wish can be a game changer for a child with a life-threatening medical condition," commented Manager of Corporate Campaigns Ashley Korbas. "It helps these kids feel stronger, more energetic, and empowers them to take back control of their lives." 

Money was raised through ticket and table sales and a silent and live auction. Our Denise Dufala was honored to be on hand to emcee the event. This year's sponsors include Parker Hannifin, Accenture, Sherwin-Willaims, KeyBanc Capital Markets and the Levanduski Family.
