In 2016, Joe Mele and Marta Lawler, with the help of Katie Hunter, Caitlin Aloia, Maddie Coulter, and students from La Salle College High School, Mount St. Joseph Academy, & Gwynedd-Mercy Academy carried on the Broadway Wishes tradition raising over $12,000 benefitting Make-A-Wish foundation.
In 2017, Katie Hunter, Alyssa Mattia, and Ryan Corr, with the help of Maggie McDonald and Colleen Mars continued the tradition of Broadway Wishes for the fifth year. With students from Mount Saint Joseph Academy, LaSalle College High School, Gwynedd Mercy Academy, and other local area high schools, they were able to raise over $17,000 to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
This spring, Nina Chae-Gordon, Lauren Esser, Grace Gillespie, Lauren Mezzanotte, and Patrick Mizzoni are continuing the tradition of Broadway Wishes. Talented students from Mount Saint Joseph Academy, LaSalle College High School, Gwynedd Mercy Academy, and other local area high schools are coming together to perform a cabaret of Broadway songs with all proceeds benefitting Make-A-Wish foundation.
We hope to reach our goal of $10,000 with support from our friends and family! You can donate by going to the Event Information page which links to our Make-A-Wish foundation donor page. Any donation is appreciated!
In 2015, Adrianna Marino, with the help of James Durkin and Colin Murtha continued Broadway Wishes for a 3rd year, raising over $11,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
In 2014, Allie McCrea decided to bring back Broadway Wishes, having talented students from La Salle College High School, Mount St. Joseph Academy, Gwynedd-Mercy Academy, and other local high schools, perform in an array of Broadway numbers. All of the proceeds from the event help grant the wishes of several children.
In 2012, Broadway Wishes was founded by Lauren Buben, a cancer survivor and beneficiary of the Make-A-Wish foundation. Lauren was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 3. Make-A-Wish granted her wish and allowed her to have a party in her honor at Cinderella's castle in Disney World. Years later, Lauren, healthy and determined, decided to give back to the foundation that helped her. As a result, Broadway Wishes was born!
Broadway Wishes helped raise over $10,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation in 2012. These donations aided a Wish Child named Hannah. Hannah suffered from a brain tumor and her wish was to be an extra in a Broadway show. Thanks to our generous and kind supporters, Broadway Wishes was able to grant Hannah's wish!
