Alpha Media, Canton is proud to announce that News-Talk 1480 WHBC-AM and Mix 94.1 (WHBC-FM) along with AultCare raised $213,946 for Wishes Can Happen, Inc.

AultCare, News-Talk 1480 WHBC, and Mix 94.1 joined forces once again to broadcast live August 9-10 for 36 hours in the parking lot at Springbrook Plaza, Whipple Avenue NW, Canton.

Wish families were on hand to talk about their granted wishes along with families that were about to receive a wish. Special tributes were made for those children that didn’t survive their illnesses. Over the 36 hours, listeners heard about wish experiences including celebrity meet and greets, shopping sprees, room remodels, trips to New York City, San Diego Zoo, dude ranches in Arizona, princess birthday parties, cruises, backyard swing sets, the ever popular Disney wish, and so many more. Wishes Can Happen is continually amazed at the wishes of ‘our kids’! “If they can wish it – we can make it happen!”

We feel very privileged to have created an event that continues to grow, allowing Wishes Can Happen to grant more wishes for local kids every year.”
