Locals celebrate 35th Annual World Make a Wish Day

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Wednesday is “World Make a Wish Day”, celebrating 35 years since the first wish was granted by the Make a Wish Foundation.

The local chapter is planning to celebrate by helping a young boy help others. An 11-year-old boy named Gabe, from Albany, wants to rebuild the barn at the Double H Ranch in Lake Luzerne in honor of his friend who passed away last year.

The Northeast New York Make a Wish chapter grants between 90 and 100 wishes each year to those in the 518 area code.
