Join Make-A-Wish Connecticut At The Celebrating Wishes Ball

Posted in Donate Car News, Friday, October 3, 2014

Supporters of Make-A-Wish Connecticut are invited to come together on Nov. 1 for the annual Celebrating Wishes Ball in Greenwich. This great event will feature an evening of entertainment, all while celebrating the hope, strength and joy that wishes have brought to numerous Connecticut children. Since 1986, more than 2,300 Connecticut children have had their wishes granted. Each year, Make-A-Wish Connecticut grants an average of 150 wishes, and you can celebrate that great success with Make-A-Wish Connecticut this November. 

A Wonderful Evening From Start To Finish

You won’t want to miss the Celebrating Wishes Ball. The evening starts at 6 p.m. and lasts until midnight. Attendees will enjoy fine dining and have the chance to bid on great live auction and silent auction items. There will also be dancing, with live music from the band E.T.A. Attire is Jacket and Tie.  

Many ticket levels, table options and sponsorship opportunities are available. Ticket options include an Event Ticket ($400), Supporter Ticket ($550), Host Ticket ($750) and Patron Ticket ($1,000). Each table option gives you ten tickets and a table that seats ten. The cost for a table ranges from $4,000-$10,000. Sponsorship opportunities include the Star Sponsor ($5,000), Joy Sponsor ($7,500), Strength Sponsor ($10,000), and Presenting Sponsor ($25,000). Each sponsorship package includes tickets for ten people. All ticket, table and sponsorship opportunities (excluding Presenting Sponsor) are unlimited, but why wait? Check out your ticket package options today!

Celebrate The Magic Of A Wish

The best part of the evening is that tickets and sponsorships help fund even more wishes for Make-A-Wish Connecticut. On an evening all about celebrating wishes, what can be better than that?

If you’ve seen the magic of a wish first hand, you know that it’s more than just a nice thing. According to the 2011 Wish Impact Study, doctors, health professionals and families agree overwhelmingly that wishes bring children and teens an improved health status and an enhanced state of mind, while also strengthening the entire community where wishes happen. A combined 89 percent of health professionals believe that a granted wish can positively impact a child’s health. In addition, 99 percent of parents say that wishes have brought their children more happiness. 95 percent of community volunteers surveyed say that the wish process has brought them an increased sense of compassion.

With amazing results like those, you can see how powerful a wish is for a child, their family, and their community.

More Ways To Help Make-A-Wish Connecticut

Attending the Ball is a great way to celebrate the power of wishes for Connecticut communities. If you can’t attend, there are still ways for you to support Make-A-Wish Connecticut and help them grant more wishes for deserving children. One such way is to consider donating a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Connecticut. Your vehicle will be auctioned or recycled, with the proceeds going to Make-A-Wish Connecticut to help them grant more wishes. Now is the best time to donate! Because your donation is tax-deductible, any vehicle donated before midnight on Dec. 31 will result in a tax deduction for this year when you file your taxes. Donating to Wheels For Wishes is the easiest way to get rid of an unwanted car, truck, boat, RV or motorcycle because we take care of all the details for you. All you need to do to get started is call 1-877-431-9474 or fill out an online vehicle donation form today!
