Have you ever thought about helping to make a wish come true for a local child? If you are, we may have the perfect idea for you to do just that. The Make-A-Wish Wishmaker’s Ball is coming up in Orlando and attending can help your local Make-A-Wish chapter grant the wish of a child in your community.

Granting wishes is easy when you make a general donation to Make-A-Wish, but why not enjoy a fun-filled evening in the process? Not only will you grant wishes for local kids in Central and Northern Florida, but you can also celebrate with Make-A-Wish Central and Northern.

A Night of Making Wishes

Saturday, May 18 will be the 19th Annual Wishmaker’s Ball. It’s Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida’s signature gala and their largest fundraiser. Once again to be held at the luxurious Waldorf Astoria Hilton Bonnet Creek (14200 Bonnet Creek Resort Lane in Orlando), the evening will include dinner, silent and live auctions, and special appearances by Make-A-Wish Wish Kids. 

One of the highlights of the evening is the raffle to be upgraded to a VIP Table for the evening, which includes the best seats in the house, personal butler service, upgraded menu and exclusive gifts and prizes.

The ball starts at 6 p.m. with the cocktail hour and silent auction. The program ends at 10 p.m., but not the fun – that’s when the curtain raises on the After Party!

Tickets for the festivities are $250 each, and tables of 10 are $2,500. Live auction items include a 6-month lease on a BMW 128i Convertible and a 5-night all-inclusive stay for three couples at Kessler Canyon in DeBeque, CO. Silent auction items include sports memorabilia, travel packages and dining experiences.

Granting Wishes Is Easy

Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida has helped grant wishes to more than 3,500 kids since 1994. If you are unable to attend this exciting event, there are still other ways for you to make wishes come true for local kids in your community. You can always donate a car, truck, SUV, RV, boat, or motorcycle to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida.

When you donate your vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, we will pick up or tow away your vehicle, anywhere in Central and Northern Florida. Earned proceeds from recycling or auctioning your vehicle will benefit Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida.
