Help Us Grant Wishes!

Help us grant wishes to children in Illinois diagnosed with critical illnesses. For two years in a row, The Great Highwood Pumpkin Fest raised $60,000 for Make-A-Wish Illinois. With your help, we can grant even more wishes this year!

Make-A-Wish Illinois will grant more than 715 wishes to children across the state this year. Wishes are granted to children with critical illnesses such as cancer, organ transplants, genetic diseases and many more. Wishes can be an important part of the treatment process, empowering children to make decisions and providing strength to comply with medical treatments.

Wishes are important not only in the moment in time they are granted, but for their lasting gifts of hope, strength and joy to wish children, their families and the communities who support them.

Since being founded locally in 1985, Make-A-Wish Illinois has granted more than 15,000 wishes and continues its mission to share the power of a wish with children across the state. For more information or to find out how you can continue to help, call 312.602.WISH or visit
