Founded in 1985, Make-A-Wish® Tri-Counties has granted the wishes of more than 1,650 local children in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties on the central coast of California.
It all started with Jon's wish to visit the Kennedy Space Center with his family in 1985. The wish experience provided such wonderful memories to his family, they returned home and founded Make-A-Wish® Tri-Counties.
