Generating hope, one wish at time with Make-a-Wish of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana


The ability to grant a wish for a critically ill child and their family is incredible and is the reason why GE Lighting has passionately worked selflessly for the past 20 years to support Make-a-Wish of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.  The main mode of fundraising for wishes is through an annual large-scale golf outing and raffle.  In the past 20 years, GE Lighting, in partnership with generous donors, in-kind partners and hole sponsors, has raised $308,000 which has granted 50 wishes in Northeast Ohio.  We are proud to display the wish children and their families in our halls for all to see.
