Posted at 8:53 AM, Jan 10, 2017

The Queen City claimed its crown in the Make-a-Wish Holiday Wish Battle!

Make-a-Wish Western New York hosted a competition between 7 Eyewitness News reporter Thuy Lan Nguyen and a reporter from Rochester's 13WHAM. In the one-month competition, reporters worked with local businesses and Wish Children to see who could raise more money for the non-profit organization.

Together, WKBW and 13WHAM raised more than $22,000 dollars. Buffalo raised a little more than $13,000 of that total. 

Thuy Lan partnered with Marco's Italian Restaurant and the Kenilworth Volunteer Fire Department to raiseseveral thousand dollars. 

Thank you to all of our viewers, our community partners and everyone who has supported Make-a-Wish to help grant wishes for children right here in Western New York!
