Two roundtrip tickets to Las Vegas will be given away at the Santa Maria Airport as part of the Make-A-Wish Donation Drive.  Free photos with Santa Claus will also be available at the event from 1:30 to 4:30 this Thursday afternoon.

Everyone who makes a donation will be in the drawing for the airline tickets, compliments of Allegiant Air.

This year, Make-A-Wish is in need of gift cards, new disposable cameras, new beach towels, sunscreen, travel games and other items to help create positive experiences for “Wish Kids”.

Make-A-Wish grants the wish of a child diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions all across the United States and for many of those children, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses.

Free parking is available at the airport and donations can be made in front of the airline ticket counters.
