The Make A Wish Foundation attended a local school after a very successful fundraising effort.

Students at New River Elementary School in Oak Hill raised over $3,500 for the Make A Wish Foundation. The money raised will go to granting a child's wish in Fayette County. The school held a celebration in their cafeteria to acknowledge their students efforts. Jobeth Smith said the children's efforts will help someone else down the line.

"We consider an average cost of a wish to be 39-hundred dollars so they were able to grant, to sponsor a whole wish just from this elementary school or close to a whole wish."

The Make A Wish Foundation attempts to grant the wishes of children ages two-and-a-half through 18 years of age that display life threatening conditions.
