Residents in the Louisville area can support Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana in a big way this August. Come to the Louisville BIG Wish Gala on Aug. 5 to help raise funds, partake in great auctions and enjoy a delicious sit-down dinner. The Gala is a great time to be inspired by Wish Stories and see just how important your support is.

Gala Details

The Gala begins at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 5 at the Seelbach Hilton Louisville (500 S 4th St.) in Louisville. The evening begins with registration and a cocktail hour, followed by a silent auction, dinner and Wish Program. Guests can also expect a few fun surprises along the way.

The program will feature inspiring stories from local Wish Kids whose lives have been changed by Make-A-Wish. Nothing is more heartwarming than hearing firsthand how important your support is at events like the Gala.

The silent and live auctions will feature something for everyone with one-of-a-kind items. Guests can bid easily straight from their smart phones by using an electronic bidding service. If you don’t have a smart phone, auction staff will circulate throughout the room assisting you with any bids you would like to make. If you would like to donate items or have any questions about the auctions, contact auction coordinator Lisa Reeves.

Tickets are available now if you’d like to claim your spot ahead of time. Check out ticket details on the event website here. Guests who would like to make an even bigger impact can also inquire about sponsorship. There’s a sponsorship level for everyone depending on your company’s needs. Levels range from $1,500 to $15,000.
