Gault Energy has launched a fundraising drive for Make-A-Wish Connecticut, the nonprofit that grants about 150 wishes each year to Connecticut children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Gault reports that it made a $5,000 contribution to the fund and hopes its employees, customers and others in the community will donate to its "Dollars for Dreams" fund. Make-A-Wish Connecticut said the average cost of granting a child's wish is $10,000, according to a news release issued by Gault.

Gault said donations to "Dollars for Dreams" may be made online at
