'The Johnjay & Rich Show' Grants Ultimate Christmas Wish For Deserving Arizona Family

"The JOHNJAY & RICH SHOW," as part of their annual CHRISTMAS WISH program, helped nine families in need this holiday season, including one special family in BUCKEYE, AZ. C.Y. and her husband KYLE, who have four of their own children, recently adopted KYLE’s nine-year-old second cousin ALEXA, whose parents had passed away. After learning she had three siblings in OKLAHOMA, the family tried to adopt them, but struggled to meet the necessary state requirements, including the purchase of more beds for the children.
C.Y.’s best friend MEGAN, who she hasn’t seen face-to-face since 2008, secretly nominated her for the CHRISTMAS WISH program. This week, "The JOHNJAY & RICH Show," in conjunction with THE JOHNJAY & RICH CARE FOR KIDS FOUNDATION, showed up outside C.Y.’s home as she found out she was receiving $1000 in free groceries, $1000 for new clothes for the family, toys for all the kids, two new bunk bed sets with four new twin mattresses, and the biggest surprise of all -- a reunion with her best friend MEGAN, who was standing outside her front door.
The CHRISTMAS WISH program began in the late ‘80s at 93.7 KRQ/TUCSON as a way to both help children and their families have a memorable CHRISTMAS. In its humble beginnings, recipients received small items such as a tree and a few toys. Since "The JOHNJAY & RICH Show took over the program in 2001, it has expanded to include more cities across the U.S., as well as life-changing prizes for the families.
