The vice president of DGA Builders, LLC, in Pittsford, New York, Tony DiTucci is experienced in construction project management. Outside of work, Tony DiTucci is a dedicated member of his community, supporting charities such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Every year, Make-A-Wish grants thousands of wishes made by children who are living with critical medical conditions. The organization facilitates many of these experiences thanks to the cooperation of its celebrity supporters. For the last three decades, Make-A-Wish has recognized the generous contributions of these individuals with the Chris Greicius Celebrity Award.

In November 2018, Make-A-Wish announced its most recent award winners, each of whom has played an instrumental role in furthering the organization’s goals and hosting their own wish experiences.

WWE co-president Michelle Wilson earned recognition for her work as a member of the organization’s Corporate Advisory Council and board member of its Connecticut chapter.

Make-A-Wish also honored celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay for launching a campaign to arrange 24 wishes in the span of 24 hours. After involving some of his celebrity associates, he surpassed his goal with 32 total wishes.

The third recipient was YouTuber and baker Rosanna Pansino, who regularly grants wishes by making delicious treats with her wish kids. With a network of 10 million subscribers, she shares her wish-granting experiences among a diverse audience.

Lastly, Make-A-Wish recognized NBA champ Stephen Curry, who has been fulfilling wishes for five years. He has granted 24 wishes in the past year alone.
