Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana (Make-A-Wish OKI) is pleased to announce that the 2020 Central Ohio BIG Wish® Gala on February 29th will be presented by Discover for the 7th year in a row.

“We’re so grateful to call Discover a part of the Make-A-Wish family,” said Make-A-Wish OKI Regional Director of Development Carol Richardson. “Over the past seven years, Discover has generously contributed enough to grant nearly 50 life-changing wishes for children in central Ohio! Discover cares so deeply for our mission and continues to make a huge impact for local kids. We can’t thank Discover and its employees enough for supporting our mission.”

“Make-A-Wish is an outstanding local organization Discover has worked with for more than three decades and we’re truly inspired by the programs they offer to support kids facing critical illnesses and their families,” said Keith Carroll, VP of Operations. “Supporting the local community is embedded in our culture and values and we actively support the Columbus area through a mix of volunteer efforts and financial donations, including stellar organizations like Make-A-Wish.”

The 2020 Central Ohio BIG Wish Gala will be held at Columbus Athenaeum on Saturday, February 29th from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
