Our partner, Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia is celebrating 30 years of wish granting this year and you can be a part of the fun. Join other Make-A-Wish volunteers and donors at this year’s Sparkling Masquerade Ball in New Cumberland, W.Va. Tickets for this magical ball are $50 and include appetizers and wine tasting, dinner, entertainment, along with live and silent auctions.
The Sparkling Masquerade Ball will benefit wish children living in Morgantown, Scranton, Charleston and many more cities in the region. Make-A-Wish Pennsylvania and West Virginia has granted more than 15,000 wishes since it was first formed in 1983. The chapter was the first Make-A-Wish chapter in the world to grant more than 700 wishes in just one year – and has continued to build on their success year after year.
The most popular wish at Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia is a trip to see Mickey Mouse in Florida. Wishes average about $3,900 at this Make-A-Wish Chapter. That is why fundraisers such as the Sparkling Masquerade Ball are so important! More than 50 percent of all donations come from individual sponsors like you. Play an active role in making a child with a life-threatening medical condition happy today. Help a child build strength and hope by providing a wish!
A Masquerade Ball Is Fun For Everyone!
The Masquerade Ball is scheduled to take place Nov. 23 beginning at 6 p.m. The Ball will take place at Mountaineer Casino Racetrack and Resort, Grande Ballroom, 1420 Mountaineer Circle, New Cumberland, W. Va.
The grand event will be fun for everyone, big, small, old or young, so gather your friends, dress in your best cocktail attire and join the celebration. Don’t forget to bid on one of the many neat silent auction items decorating the tables throughout the ballroom. With all of the activities planned, Nov. 23 will be a Saturday to remember.
