Make-A-Wish Connecticut has done amazing work to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses – and you can help too! Get dressed up at the black-tie optional Evening of Wishes Gala on March 29 at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville.

The evening will feature music, dinner, dancing and dozens of exciting live and silent auction items to bid on. NBC Connecticut sports anchor Joe D’Ambrosio and NBC Connecticut anchor Kerri-Lee Mayland are co-hosting the event.

Help Honor This Year’s Special Guest

More than 600 guests are expected to gather to honor the event’s special guest, Wish Kid Sierra. At six years old, Sierra was diagnosed with a critical illness. But the power of a wish helped turn despair into hope, fear into strength, and sorrow into joy. Sierra’s wish, to visit “Harry Potter Land” in London, gave her the hope to believe in a future. 

As the star of the “Evening of Wishes” Gala, guests will witness first-hand Sierra’s dreams become a reality and watch as she begins her journey to change the world.
