In what has become an annual holiday tradition, local rock station 95X last weekend raised $7,500 for the local chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. An auction of rock-related memorabilia, held at Shoppingtown Mall, included an autographed guitar from Kenny Wayne Shepard and signed South Park dolls.
Sharon Grabosky, Manager of Special Events for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central New York, was pleased with this year's event, saying, "the staff at 95X works very hard all year long on this project and we are grateful for their support." The average cost of a wish is $5,300.
