CHICAGO -- Thanks to your generous donations, kids across the state will see their wishes come true. On May 25, Chicago’s Very Own teamed up with Make-A-Wish-Illinois for a day-long airline miles drive to support the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions. Running from 7am-7pm, the drive ended with a grand total of 4,280,246 miles, surpassing their goal! It's not too late to donate, and the miles never expire once they are in the Make-A-Wish account. Donated miles are used exclusively for wish family travel. For more information, go to illinois.wish.org/miles.
