On April 17, I was privileged to volunteer some time capturing the 2013 BIG Wish Gala for Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. I’ve done this for a few years and it’s always a rewarding experience! Dallas Clark came back this year to host the event, and you can tell he’s more than a figurehead at these events. He really connects with these kids and, on more than one occasion, got choked up telling one of their stories. This year, the event raise $475,000 to help grant wishes to local children.
If you don’t know anything about Make-a-Wish, the group grants wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. It’s granted more than 153,000 wishes since 1980. Check them out at Wish.org.
