AbigailThe NY Cosmos have adopted Abigail's wish to go to on a Disney cruise thanks to the success of this great community event. Thank you NY Cosmos for helping grant Abigail's most heartfelt wish!

A message from our President & CEO Tom Conklin: 

“We thank the New York Cosmos and Mercy College for their spirit of generosity and commitment to our mission. Money raised from this extraordinary community event will be instrumental in continuing to insure that an eligible child will have the opportunity to have their one true most heartfelt wish granted.”

Special thanks to volunteers Barbara, Cindy, Connie, Frank, Laura, Lauren, Pat, Tom L., and Rosanne for their passion, enthusiasm, and dedication to our mission. Over the course of the three days they fielded questions about how to refer children to our organization, donating, and all the ways individuals can get involved in their local community.
