All earned proceeds from this event benefit your local Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area!

Enjoy An Evening Filled With Magic

Aside from its amazing setting at the Tehama Golf Club in Carmel Valley, the Monterey Bay Gala is filled with fine dining, beautiful décor, outstanding silent and live auction items, and fantastic performers. Auction items from last year’s Gala included a Kentucky Derby experience, tickets to the finale of Dancing With The Stars, and memorabilia autographed by Clint Eastwood. 

This year, guests will enjoy performances by comedians George Lopez and Jackie Flynn. Guests will also enjoy music from the 1980’s band, The Greg Kihn Band. The band has opened for popular bands such as Journey, The Grateful Dead, and the Rolling Stones! You won’t want to miss this outstanding event that gives you the perfect night out, while also helping to grant wishes for Greater Bay area kids.

So Many Ways To Grant Wishes For Greater Bay Area Kids

Wheels For Wishes is a proud supporter of Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area and their 2013 Monterey Bay Gala. However, if you cannot attend this spectacular event, there are still other ways for you to get involved and help Make-A-Wish grant wishes for local kids.

If you are looking for another way to help Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area, consider donating an unwanted vehicle that you no longer need. Whether it’s a car, SUV, camper, ATV, boat, or Jet Ski, consider putting it to better use, especially if it doesn’t run. Your donation to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area, can help Make-A-Wish grant wishes for local kids with life-threatening medical conditions.

The Wheels For Wishes Car Donation program includes free pick-up and towing of your unwanted vehicle, and you will also receive the highest possible tax deduction for your charitable vehicle donation.

Your unwanted car can do more than you ever thought possible, and all you need to do is give us a call at 1-877-431-9474 or fill out our online vehicle donation form. Both methods only take a few moments of your time, and your vehicle will soon be on its way to making wishes come true.
