Senior Wishes recently granted Mary her wish for piano lessons so she could share her love of piano music with the residents of her senior apartment complex. Mary told them, “I have an ‘ear’ which has been discovered at my late age and I would like to entertain residents which I know would be a source of happiness for them.”

How wonderful! We are sure Mary will make beautiful music for everyone to enjoy!

Senior Wishes’ first wish was granted in March 2014, and since then the organization has been recognizing WNY’s seniors in increasing numbers with the support of community members and corporate sponsors.  Other wishes granted have included travel to reunite family members, including a recent trip allowing a grandmother to visit her sick granddaughter; trips to sporting or cultural events; painting, photography and swim lessons; makeovers; and museum tours.

To learn how to apply for a wish, visit or call 716-508-2121.
