"No Matter Who You Are"

"No Matter Who You Are"

Wish Upon A Star began in 1985 when co-founders Carolyn Pfaffmann and Carl
Wallace joined forces to help Jamie Petty a local child who had recently been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.  Jamie had a dream of visiting Walt Disney World in Florida so that she could meet Mickey Mouse.  Thanks to the their efforts and the support of the tri-state community Jamie's wish came true.  Through this experience 
Wish Upon A Star was born.

Today our organization is a local non-profit based Evansville Indiana.  Our mission is to provide once in a lifetime wishes to children
between the ages of  3 and 18 who have been diagnosed with a life threatening or terminal illness. We limit the area of our service to Southern Indiana, Southeastern Illinois and Western Kentucky, this allows us to proudly let our supporters know their donations are helping make dreams come true for children in our area.

As an independent non-profit agency with no national affiliations we rely soley on the support of our community to make these dreams come true.  Currently we receive donations through private and corporate gifts, in-kind goods and services, grants and foundation gifts.  To date more than 230 wishes have been granted to tri-state children from our organization.
