The Cakes by Brian Foundation located in Galion, is the First Foundation to Partner with Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Brian T. Foley, Founder, established this non-profit foundation in 2014. Brian has been a resident of Galion for 6 years and has also introduced the community to Cakes by Brian Gourmet Bakery.

Foley said the mission for the foundation is simple: Grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.

"It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every child. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible," Foley said.

"Our goal is to grant as many wishes as we can to each eligible child and hospital need,"Foley said.

"Wishes are more than just a nice thing. They are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved - children, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies," Foley said.

"For us, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage and hope to comply with their treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic," Foley said.

"Throughout the months ahead we will be holding events that will enable us to bring awareness to our community," Foley said.

Foley said there are a few different ways the community can help through sponsorships, fundraising, giving, volunteering, products and promotions. Stay tuned on Facebook for a list of Calendar of Events for 2014
