Founded in 1984 by local businessman Kostas Kalogeropoulos Dream Come True fulfills the dreams of children who are seriously, chronically or terminally ill and reside in the Greater Lehigh Valley PA area. The children are between the ages of 4 and 17 years old. Dream Come True is unique in that we are a local organization that fulfill dreams for serious and chronic illnesses not just terminal ones. We also offer dream recipients, college scholarships and funeral expenses.
With our first dream for Jamie in 1984 to Disney World, Dream Come True has brought smiles and special moments to over 1,000 ill children and their families. Serving the local area for 24 years we have touched the lives of many sick children. We strive to give them hope and help them get away from their daily trials and tribulations regarding their illness. We let them have the chance to dream.
Our first year we fulfilled two dreams. Currently we fulfill 30 dreams annually and on the mission page
