Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee – We are still granting wishes!

Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Beth Torres, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee, who discusses the history of the organization, the power of granting a wish, how wishes are granted, how the pandemic has impacted the wishes and the waiting list, how the community can help, and more.

  • We are still granting wishes! It may look a bit different, but we are still making wishes come true.
  • Wish kids are waiting! More than 230 kids in Middle Tennessee are waiting.  What we are doing to prepare to grant those wishes… and how people can help us.
  • How some companies are using their skills to help us through this challenging time. Evlove Studios in Franklin has donated time and resources to film a commercial about wishes that are waiting, using local wish kids!  Check it out here
Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.
We serve children in 38 counties in the Middle Tennessee area, and have granted more than 1100 wishes since being founded in 2000. Every year, hundreds of Tennessee children are diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. A wish provides a child and family with an experience that will restore hope to their lives and provide a joyful moment, or an occasion or celebration to look forward to during lengthy or life-long treatments for and recovery from illness.
Our goal is to grant wishes to all eligible children between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 in our area. If you know of a child who may be eligible, please have them contact us at 615-221-2200 or refer to them our website at We want to make their wishes come true!
The average cost of a wish is $7,000. Every donation helps make dreams come true. If you would like to donate and help us in our fundraising efforts please visit our website at . You can share the power of a wish!
