With 20 years of successful events, the Watertown Make-A-Wish Dinner and Dance has become one of the most popular annual events in the area. Members of the community flock to the event center in order to participate in a fun evening which benefits the children of Make-A-Wish. Friday, Nov. 1 will be the 21st Annual Make-A-Wish Dinner and Dance in Watertown, S.D.

The evening of fun begins at 5 p.m. with a social period for all guests that lasts until dinner at 7 p.m. At 8 p.m. the real fun begins with a program, live auction, silent auction, music and dancing.

Participation In Make-A-Wish Fundraisers Helps To Grant The Wishes Of Children

Make-A-Wish relies on contributions and the generosity of people like you. While they provide fun events, such as the Watertown Make-A-Wish Dinner and Dance, their main goal is to make the wishes of children with critical illnesses come true. Every dollar makes a difference in the life of a Make-A-Wish Wish Kid.

Your contributions can help send a child to Disney World, enjoy a trip flying above the badlands or meet their favorite sports team. Each wish brings hope into the life of a child that has been severely impacted by a critical illness​. More than 65 percent of wishes from the South Dakota Make-A-Wish chapter require some kind of trip through the air. By taking part in fundraisers like the Watertown Make-A-Wish Dinner and Dance, you make granting these wishes a reality.

Help Make-A-Wish By Donating A Vehicle Today

Schedules can be busy, especially in the fall, with school starting up, sporting events, and preparing homes for winter – which as we all know can come especially early in the Dakotas! However, there are other ways to help grant the wishes of children through Make-A-Wish if you are unable to attend the Make-A-Wish Dinner and Dance

Donating a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes can go a long way in helping Make-A-Wish grant the wish of a child with a critical illness. Maybe you have been thinking about getting rid of your car, boat, ATV, SUV or motorcycle for a while now, but don’t want to go through the hassle of selling your vehicle; maybe you are looking to upgrade your current vehicle to one that handles better in cooler weather; either way, Wheels For Wishes is here for you.

All of the net proceeds from your donation go toward your local South Dakota Make-A-Wish chapter. On top of that, you receive a tax deduction for the value of the vehicle and we will pick-up and tow the vehicle at no cost to you! You can’t go wrong by donating your vehicle to Wheels For Wishes. To donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, please call 1-877-431-9474 or fill out our easy online vehicle donation form.
