The Wishes in Flight Miles Drive is happening today at the Stony Point Fashion Park from 4:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.

You can donate your unused frequent flyer miles to help Make-a-Wish send area kids and their families on their dream trips.

Once donated to Make-A-Wish, these miles never expire. This year, we’re going to grant 188 wishes for local kids.
