Wishes Rock!

The Make-A-Wish Radiothon on 97Rock celebrated 25 remarkable years on September 12-13. The community came together in an amazing way, and the event delivered record-breaking results. It raised more than $300,000 to bring hope, strength, and transformation to countless wish children and their families in Western New York.

Lilly’s Wish To Be A Zookeeper

Lilly was diagnosed with leukemia last September. She’s spent the past year enduring a bone marrow transplant and multiple rounds of chemotherapy. While she was recovering at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, she escaped reality by watching “The Zoo” on Animal Planet.


Lilly has a deep love of animals and finds solace in helping them. She dreamed about one thing – to be a zookeeper at the famous Bronx Zoo. It was something she could never do on her own, but with your help, she did just that.
