When former Tonight Show Host Jay Leno is not busy performing stand-up comedy for large scale arena crowds, he is busy helping to make wishes come true.
On March 16th, Jay Leno supported The Make-A-Wish Foundation annual black tie gala. This annual benefit helps raise funds to assist The Make-A-Wish Foundation’s mission to grant wishes that change the lives of eligible kids and be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid easier to achieve.
Veteran Tonight Show host and comedian, Jay Leno, has been an active wish granter for Make-A-Wish. Last summer, Leno granted a wish to an Illinois wish child, Robert, who was interested in Jay’s car collection. Immediately after his performance, Jay auctioned off packages to visit his Big Dog Garage, raising an additional $100,000 for Make-A-Wish Illinois as stated on the Make-A-Wish website.
