KGW is teaming up with the Tonkin Family of Dealerships and Pacific Seafood to help make wishes come true for local kids with life-threatening medical conditions. On September 27, 2016 KGW is presenting the Wishes in Flight telethon to support Make-A-Wish Oregon in its efforts to bring hope, strength and joy to local children. Throughout the day, you are invited to call or go online to donate airline miles or make a cash donation.
Alaska Airlines will match every Alaska Mileage Plan mile you donate to Make-A-Wish Oregon, up to a total of one million miles.
The telethon kicks off a week-long campaign, with 100% of the contributions helping Make-A-Wish Oregon grant 250 wishes in the coming year. Phone lines will be open on September 27, but online donations can be made throughout the week.
