Special Areas for Wish Children

When wish children visit the Samuel & Josephine Plumeri Wishing Place, they will know this one-of-a-kind castle is a place built for them. The special areas designated for the wish making experience are at the heart of the building, designed to stimulate the imagination and reveal the extraordinary possibilities of a wish when life is offering only escalating limitations. These areas create just the right environment to bring the special brand of Make-A-Wish magic to our wish children.

Chris Greicius Inspiration Room

Made possible by a generous gift from Phil and Kathleen Ciarco

The Inspiration Room is named for the child who, in 1980, wished to be an Arizona highway patrolman and whose experience later inspired this organization. In the Inspiration Room, wish children can contemplate the opportunity that lies before them and consider their fondest wish. The myriad images surrounding them in this room were created to stimulate their imaginations, without influencing, and allow them to think beyond the limits of their current condition and environment.

Inspiration Grove

Made possible by a generous gift from Somerset Patriots and Steven & Suzanne Kalafer

Wish children and their families will journey through Inspiration Grove, a pathway surrounded by life-size flowers and a canopy of trees, on their way to the Wishing Room.  Amid the sound effects of an enchanted forest, a wish child can anticipate his or her wish as they view inspirational stories of children whose wishes were previously granted.

The Wishing Room

Made possible by a generous gift from Phil and Kathleen Ciarco

The act of wishing should be a uniquely magical moment, an event that is somehow out of the ordinary, taking place in a thematic environment free of limitations, confinement, or stress. Inside the Wishing Room, the child will experience an enchanted and transformational environment and answer the magical question, “If you had one wish, what would it be?”

Teen Lounge

Made possible by a generous gift from the Berardo Family

Recognizing that teenagers have different needs than younger children, the Teen Lounge is a special room that will allow older wish children to experience the wish process in an equally special and age-appropriate way.

Teens leave messages of hope, strength and joy for wish children who will visit in the future.
