Great Events Benefiting Make-A-Wish Southern Florida To End 2015

October 19, 2015

This November and December, there are several fun ways for you to help Make-A-Wish Southern Florida. Whether you want a formal, elegant tea party, or to see a massive-holiday light display, you can help grant wishes to children all over Southern Florida who are facing a critical illness. By attending events like these, you help to provide wishes all across Florida; in cities like Hollywood, Hialeah and Fort Lauderdale

Nick's Starlight Spectacular

As Part of a Kids For Wish Kids project, Nicholas Caine sets up a massive holiday light display at his residence in North Miami Beach (1880 NE 181st St.). Nicholas's event includes fun activities such as inflatable rides, a DJ, food stands and photo opportunities with Santa. More than 1 million lights and 100 inflatables will be on display to help brighten the holiday season from Nov. 1, 2015 to Jan. 4, 2016. There is no cost for spectators, and 100 percent of proceeds from concession sales and photos with Santa will benefit Make-A-Wish Southern Florida. If you have questions, please e-mail nicksstarlightspectacular@gmail.com.

Palm Beach Sailfish Classic

The Palm Beach Sailfish Classic is a 3-day tournament that will take place on Nov. 19-21, at the Palm Beach Sailing Club (4600 N. Flagler Dr., West Palm Beach).

Your Donation Provides Hope And Joy

A donation to Make-A-Wish is a gift like no other. Children with critical illnesses want nothing more than to live a normal life; your donation helps to make that possible. By helping to provide a wish for a child, you enable them to feel normal again and enjoy a day where they can live carefree and just be a kid. Wishes that may seem insignificant to us can mean the world to a child in need.

Make-A-Wish Southern Florida grants a wish every 16 hours. Since many children wish to travel to Disney World and meet all of their favorite Disney characters, this chapter is able to grant wishes very efficiently. Still, the need for fundraising is vital. Every child is different, which means every wish is unique!
