Make-A-Wish Request-A-Thon 2023

WZPL’s signature community event is back for its 27th year!

Join the Smiley Morning Show for the annual Make-A-Wish Request-A-Thon starting Thursday, November 30th at 6am for 36 hours. It’s easy – you call, make a donation and a song request, we’ll play requests, meet some Hoosier kids dealing with life-threatening illness, hear their wishes, and with your help, we grant those wishes!

Make A Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. More than 250 children in Indiana are waiting for their wish to be granted. These kids deal with so much through treatments and hospital stays; a wish is an invaluable tool to bring hope and excitement to a scary situation.
