Make-A-Wish Georgia has granted more than 10,959 wishes since 1995, and while they are hoping to grant more than 400 wishes this year, there are more than 800 children with critical illnesses waiting for a wish to be granted. That’s what makes the Make-A-Wish Georgia 2014 Wish Ball: Reach for the Stars, such an important fundraising event.

Not only is The Wish Ball one of the premier charity events on the Atlanta social scene, it has been one of the flagship fundraising events for Make-A-Wish Georgia. This is the 10th year of the Wish Ball, and the previous events have raised more than $3 million.

Tickets, Sponsorships Still Available

This year’s event is on Saturday, Oct. 18, at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead (3300 Peachtree Road NE). Multiple sponsorship packages are available for this high-profile corporate event: Presenting Sponsorship ($50,000), Hope Sponsorship ($30,000), Strength Sponsor ($20,000), Joy Sponsor ($15,000), Shooting Star Sponsor ($10,000) and Shining Star Sponsor ($7,000).

There are also additional Patron Level sponsorships available for individuals ranging from $1,250 to $5,000. All sponsorship levels are eligible to receive tickets to the Patron Party, which is held on Sept. 25 at the home of Patti Dickey. The event will celebrate the generosity of our donors and their commitment to our mission.
