Help Wishes Come True At The Hudson Valley Wish Ball

April 11, 2015

The Hudson Valley Wish Ball is a magical evening that helps raise money to fund more wishes for kids in places like White Plains, Yonkers, and Middletown. Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley is currently working on making more than 170 wishes come true, and your attendance will help them reach all of those children. Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley has granted more than 2,300 wishes in its 29 years. Help them continue that amazing progress at the Wish Ball May 8!

The Wish Ball Is A Can't-Miss Event

This year's Wish Ball takes place in Tarrytown on Friday, May 8 at the Doubletree by Hilton Tarrytown (455 S Broadway). Come in your best festive attire, or if you'd like, black tie. Valet parking is available as well.

The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by an entertaining and delicious dinner at 7:30. Dinner includes a presentation and exciting live auction hosted by Darlene Rodriguez of NBC's Today in New York and Mike Bennet of WHUD's Mike & Kacey in the Morning.

The evening will also feature a special presentation by a local Wish Family and Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley will be honoring long-time supporters Janet and Thomas Sullivan at the Wish Ball this year. After dinner, dance the night away with Music of the Monotones.
