Make Wishes Come True At The BIG Wish Gala

Posted in Donate Car News, Friday, July 18, 2014

The BIG Wish Gala is coming up very quickly, but you still have time to get your tickets and support this wonderful event! This year’s Gala will be held in Louisville on Aug. 1 at the Louisville Marriott Downtown (280 W Jefferson Street). With a fantastic sit-down dinner, great auction and live Wish Stories, this is an event you won’t want to miss out on. 

A Great Time From Start To Finish

The Gala starts at 6 p.m. and comes to an end at 11:30 p.m. When you arrive at 6 p.m., there is a Cocktail Hour and Silent Auction followed by the sit-down dinner and Program at 7. The program concludes at 9:30, but the evening doesn’t end there – from 9:30-11 live music and dancing will fill the rest of your night.

At the event, you will have the opportunity to hear the story of honorary Wish Kid Kinsey, as she and her family will be there. In 2002 Kinsey had her wish granted to go to Walt Disney World after she was diagnosed with multiple life-threatening medical conditions. As Kinsey shares her experience with guests you will see first-hand the powerful effect of a wish and its lasting impact.

In addition to the inspiring program, the auctions are too good to be missed. One of the exciting items up for bid is a Mockingjay premier package donated by Jennifer Lawrence’s Family! The package includes four tickets to “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” movie premier in either Los Angeles or New York City this fall with round trip airfare included. On top of all that, the package also includes four tickets to a VIP after party.

You Have The Power To Help Grant Wishes

Since 1983, Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana has granted over 12,000 wishes for children facing life-threatening medical conditions. With your help, you can help them reach even more children and grant their wish during a time when they need it most. Attending the Gala is an excellent way to help make that happen. However, if you can’t attend there are still ways you can help.

If you have an unwanted car, SUV, RV, camper or boat, you can turn that vehicle into a wish for a child in your community when you donate it to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Wheels For Wishes will auction or recycle your donated vehicle and the proceeds from its sale go to Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Donating is easy and only takes a moment of your time. Just call 1-877-431-9474 to speak with a donation representative or fill out a donation form online to turn your old vehicle into so much more.
