Yup, still not Thanksgiving yet.

Season Of Wishes: Mark Wallengren To Host Make-A-Wish Event At The Grove

3903_1165843143.jpgKOST FM (103.5)’s morning show host, Mark Wallengren will host the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s first Weekly Wish Night at 5:30 p.m. today at the Grove.

The deeper-voiced half of the Mark and Kim Show will help present 9-year-old leukemia patient Jorge Arranga, of Gardena, with his wish to spend Christmas with his mother and extended family in Guadalajara, Mexico. After the one-week visit, Jorge will return to L.A. to continue his chemotherapy treatments.

Wallengren tells FBLA he believes the media have a responsibility to get behind charitable organizations.

“I happen to work for a corporation that doesn’t do a matching dollar for charity,” says Wallengren, who works for Clear Channel. “There are other corporations that are good at it, but I wish corporate America would be more generous with employees’ choices for charitable work.”

If that were the case, Clear Channel would be out a lot of money. Wallengren is involved in organizations related to ALS (his brother died of it), Down’s Syndrome (his neighbor’s daughter has it), diabetes (his sister is battling it) and other diseases that have hit close to home.

“People get caught up in this mindset of, ‘I can’t do anything about it. It’s too big.’ Well, think locally,” he says. “That will help the picture globally.”

Make-A-Wish Foundation Kicks Off Season Of Wishes

makeasmall.jpgFishbowl LA is partnering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation this year (See? We’re not all snark and bad manners). This puts us in a small, elite group of media sponsors:

KTTV-TV (FOX 11 LA), KSCI-TV (LA18), KOST-FM (103.5), Showtime Networks Inc., Multivu, PR Newswire, Cision, Los Angeles Magazine, Oversee.net, The Walt Disney Company

OK. Maybe not so small and elite. Still, we will be proudly reporting the wishes granted this holiday season — including one on Nov. 17 at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, where Disney will grant one child his or her wish to visit Walt Disney World in Orlando.

The Season of Wishes kicked off on Friday at The Grove, featuring the tales of various wish children and an appearance by Kiely Williams of The Cheetah Girls.

For those of you who are just visiting from Mars, Make-A-Wish grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Not even we can find snark in that. To wit:
