Great Wish Ball To Raise Money For Arizona Kids

Make-A-Wish Arizona’s 2013 Rat Pack Wish Ball raised $2.4 million and hosted 470 guests last year. The upcoming Great Wish Ball offers another opportunity to give back and help the chapter that helped found Make-A-Wish in 1980. The ball, which celebrates the mission of Make-A-Wish Arizona by raising funds to grant the wishes of Arizona children with life-threatening medical conditions, has long been a significant event for the chapter.

This year’s Great Wish Ball black-tie gala is on April 5 at The Phoenician (6000 Camelback Road, Scottsdale), from 6-11 p.m. The Wish Ball includes a program, silent and live auction and entertainment for guests, as well as bringing together donors with wish families and wish kids who attend as guests of Make-A-Wish Arizona.

Grant Wishes For Kids In Your Community

Granting wishes is easy when you attend a local Make-A-Wish event which benefits kids in your own community. You can be responsible for providing a child with the opportunity to take a trip to the location of their dreams or allow them to spend a day with their favorite role model. Attending the 2013 Make-A-Wish Wish Ball will provide you with a great time while also allowing you to support your local Make-A-Wish Arizona.

Event tickets are selling for $500 and you are given the opportunity to make a tax-deductible donation when you purchase your ticket. However, if you are unable to attend the event that benefits Make-A-Wish Arizona, you can still become an event sponsor. You can become a Platinum Sponsor ($15,000), Gold Sponsor ($10,000), Silver Sponsor ($7,500), or a Table Sponsor ($5,000). Whatever you choose, you will be helping to grant wishes for a local child in your community. If you have any sponsorship questions, e-mail Lee Hartmann at lhartmann@wishaz.org.

For more information on the Make-A-Wish Arizona Wish Ball on Saturday, April 5 at The Phoenician, e-mail the Make-A-Wish Events Team at events@wishaz.org.
