About Make-A-Wish

Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana’s mission is to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Make-A-Wish is more than wish granting; it is a global movement of transforming lives through hope, strength and joy. The promise of a wish come true alone can open a world of possibilities for a child who spends so much time within the four walls of a hospital room.

In 2023, Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana celebrated it’s 40th anniversary and granted their 20,000th wish since 1983! After 40 years of wish granting, Make-A-Wish has proven time and time again that light can shine in even the darkest and most uncertain times. Every child deserves a childhood. Their mission gives a piece of it back.

There are 1,700+ children waiting for a wish. Make-A-Wish continues to receive steady referrals and we know even more children are out there. Your support is needed to ensure every child gets a wish when they need it most. You can make a difference now with a gift that will help spark joy and create hope for children in our community.

When you help grant a wish, you restore hope for a child and improve their mental well-being. You empower them to reclaim their childhood and experience transformative joy. Helping more kids find hope is something we all have the power to do.

Over the past three years, The Event has helped to grant over 30 wishes.

Will you help us grant more wishes this year?

About The Triple F Collection

After 25 years of blood, sweat, and tears in the Plastic Manufacturing business, the Frecka Family decided to leave the industry for good, selling off the family business to grow closer together, giving back and maybe have a bit of fun. Dave, Jason & Jordan all share an incredible passion for the automotive industry which led to the creation of The Triple F Collection. The Frecka family is focused on sharing their experiences with high-end performance vehicles with the community through philanthropy and social media.
