If you live in the Rochester area and you’re looking for a way to help Make-A-Wish Western New York, don’t miss An Evening of Wishes Gala on April 9. This year’s event will be held at the Locust Hill Country Club (2000 Jefferson Road) in Pittsford. The Gala is sure to be a can’t-miss event with auctions, dinner, music, dancing and more. The evening also supports the Make-A-Wish mission and helps raise funds to grant more wishes in western New York. 

Gala And Auction Details

Tickets are available for $175 each. If you plan to have a larger group, though, tables of ten are also available for $1,750 each. You can purchase your tickets online through the event website. 

An Evening of Wishes is a black tie optional event with complimentary valet parking. Doors will open at 6 p.m. The Gala will feature live music from the band Something Else, and Mike Catalana of 13 WHAM-TV will be the evening’s emcee. You can also get inspired by the work that Make-A-Wish does with the evening’s guest speaker, Wish Alumna Melody Simmons. Hearing first-hand about life-changing wishes is sure to brighten your day.

The Gala will also feature a live and silent auction, both with items you won’t want to miss out on. A few of the items include an autographed Sabres Jersey, a cupcake party for eight, a four-pack of Disney park Hopper Passes, several vacation packages and much more. The auctions will use mobile bidding, so be sure to bring a fully-charged smart phone with you.

Help Make-A-Wish Western New York With A Car Donation

Attending the Gala is a great way to help Make-A-Wish grant more wishes, but there are other ways to support the chapter if you can’t make it! If you have an unwanted car, truck, boat, RV, motorcycle or other vehicle, consider donating it to Wheels For Wishes. The proceeds from your donation will benefit Make-A-Wish Western New York.

Rather than have your vehicle collect dust, call us at 1-877-431-9474 or go online to donate it. We take care of all the details and you receive free towing, a tax deduction, and a perfect way to help Make-A-Wish.
