On World Wish Day, April 29, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada received 7,500 square feet of new office space thanks to a donation from Allegiant Airlines.
Beginning Jan 1, 2017, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada will occupy the new space at a cost of $1 per year. The space will serve as the administrative headquarters for the organization, and provide space for volunteer training, meetings and a place of support for families of children receiving wishes.
Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman and Las Vegas city councilman Bob Beers were present along with representatives from Allegiant and Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada to witness the signing of the $1 lease.
“Allegiant is thrilled to make office space available to Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada, an organization that does so much to uplift the lives of those who need it most and engage the whole community in feel-good initiatives that promote positivity and giving back,” said Allegiant Chief Operating Officer Jude Bricker. “We can’t wait to welcome the Make-A-Wish team to our campus!”
Caroline Ciocca, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada, said that the organization is "humbled and ecstatic" to receive the new offices. She said that the donated space will greatly reduce overhead expenses.
