Did you know that Make-A-Wish Southern Florida is able to grant a wish for a new child every 16 hours? With the help of many volunteers, sponsors, and donors, Make-A-Wish Wish Kids are able to experience their wish come true, but they depend on people like you to help make it happen.
Whether you make a general donation to Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, decide to donate a car to Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish, or you choose to attend the upcoming Make-A-Wish InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball, you can help grant wishes for kids in your own community!
Take Part In A Night Of Wish Granting
Since the first InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball took place 18 years ago, Make-A-Wish Southern Florida has raised more than $12.3 million! This has allowed Make-A-Wish to grant the wishes of more than 2,620 southern Florida children battling life-threatening medical conditions. With your help, Make-A-Wish Southern Florida can continue to grant the wishes of deserving children.
The InterContinental Wish Ball is not only an incredible wish-granting experience, but it includes drinks, dancing, a fantastic dinner, and a chance to bid on items in the live and silent auctions. This year’s Celebrity Auctioneer will be “Burn Notice’s” Gabrielle Anwar. Other guests over the years have included Paula Abdul, Sharon Stone, Wayne Newton, Pamela Anderson, Mike Piazza, Scottie Pippen, Richie Rich, Christian Slater, Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons, Don King, Venus and Serena Williams, Kim Kardashian, plus many more.
Guests will be delighted to attend this formal event on Saturday, Nov. 2 at the InterContinental Miami (100 Chopin Plaza in Miami). Arrive at 7 p.m. to enjoy a cocktail reception and to bid on silent auction items. A delicious dinner will be served at 8:30 p.m. Purchase your event tickets today by calling 954-967-9474 and using extension 318.
Enjoy A Full Night Of Entertainment
After dinner, be prepared for a live auction, celebrity entertainment by “American Idol” winner Adam Lambert, and a night of dancing. The night will not end there—the InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Night Club will follow and go long into the evening hours at Starlight Nightclub!
Night Club tickets go for $100 and include a complimentary open bar, music by DJ Joe Dert, and a spectacular fashion show featuring the work of Designer Traver Rains. Purchase your Night Club tickets today before they sell out!
Guests of the InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball will receive special discounts for staying at the InterContinental Miami Hotel. Be sure to check out the accommodations offered on the Make-A-Wish event website.
Do Your Part In Your Community
Even though the Make-A-Wish InterContinental Wish Ball will be a magical evening for everyone who attends, it also benefits local kids with life-threatening medical conditions and helps to grant their wishes. If you cannot attend the Wish Ball, you may consider helping out in other ways. Maybe you will make a general donation to Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, or perhaps you will choose to donate a car and put it to better use. To donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, just call us at 1-877-709-9474 or fill out our online donation form.
When you donate a car, you will receive free pick up or towing of your vehicle, a great tax deduction, and you will be helping to grant wishes for local kids. It doesn’t get much better than that!
