M.E.G. provides some of the very best events in entertainment, and at the same time feels that it is very important to give back to those who are in need. Anthony West, CEO of M.E.G. (Move Entertainment Group), has chosen the Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles as his charity of choice. “We want to be able to instantly touch the lives of those who require assistance, or who have wishes that they would like to have fulfilled while they are still able. For every event that is put on within the U.S., M.E.G. vows to apply a percentage of the proceeds to this very well respected foundation, says West.”
Make-A-Wish® Greater Los Angeles is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that fulfills the wishes of children between the ages of 2½ and 18 who confront life-threatening medical conditions.
Make-A-Wish is the legacy of Chris Greicius, a 7-year-old boy from Phoenix. Find out how his wish to be a police officer set in motion a phenomenon that would create an unprecedented kind of charity. Learn more about Our Story
On April 1, 1983 the Los Angeles chapter received its charter and granted its first wish that month to 11-year-old Gary from Ventura. The simple “I Wish to Have…a VCR” was accompanied by a year of free video rentals. Thirty years later, the chapter’s 8,056th wish was granted.
Make-A-Wish® Greater Los Angeles has granted more than 8,300 wishes – each one a life-affirming testament to hope, inspiration, and resilience. Wishes strengthen wish kids and their families, rally communities together, and change the lives of everyone involved. Experience the stories of those who know firsthand the power of a wish-come-true.
