Last year, the Make-A-Wish Illinois Associate Board hosted the successful and sold out I Wish to PARTY event. This year, the event is back and better than ever on Saturday night, Nov. 16 at ROOF on the Wit (201 N. State Street in Chicago). The program lasts from 6-9 p.m. and features DJ entertainment, a great raffle and silent auction offering gift packages for an overnight hotel stay, tickets to sporting events, certificates for dining at some of Chicago’s best restaurants and more.

Raffle tickets are one for $5 and five for $20. Raffle tickets can be purchased prior to the event; e-mail Adam Shukwit at or call 312.602.9429 for more information.

A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses.
