The Wishing Place in Southern Nevada

When wish kids walk into The Wishing Place, they enter a space where anything is possible. The Wishing Place is a sanctuary where they leave their worries about their critical illness at the door and are encouraged to act, play, and dream as a carefree kid.

The Wishing Place is a labor of love and exemplifies the transformational power when community partners unite.

Allegiant has been a part of the Make-A-Wish family nationally for years, having provided flights to wish destinations, raised funds through the sale of Wingz Kids Snack Packs in flight, and sponsored Walk For Wishes® events across the country. 

“Our partnership with Make-A-Wish, supporting the incredible work they do, brings a great sense of pride to our team – throughout the Allegiant network, and especially here in the
