Buffalo Advisory Board Chair, Maxine Awner and her husband, Dr. Steven Awner, are committed to the life-changing work of Make-A-Wish in the Western New York region. From her involvement on the board and as a Wish Granter, their joint involvement chairing the Buffalo Gala in 2018, and numerous other give back opportunities, Maxine says it’s a true honor to make a meaningful difference.
With your help, our full chapter – Make-A-Wish Metro New York and Western New York – granted 926 wishes this year. But, it’s not really the number of wishes that counts, or necessarily the wishes themselves. What matters are the children behind them, and their dreams being fulfilled. Meet some of the kids whose lives you’ve helped change.
