Chapter History and Facts

Chapter History

Make-A-Wish® South Carolina got its start with the first wish on November 10, 1984 with a child named Louis.

Louis, age 5, was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  His wish was to see “a big time football game”.  He attended a home game at the Citadel in Charleston.  He was presented with his own team uniform and was able to run out onto the field with the players.  Louis watched the game not in the stands like the other fans, but on the benches with the players.  The chapter has granted more than 5000 wishes since Louis' wish.
