Tis the season of wishes, and to celebrate 30 years of granting wishes in the Mid-Atlantic region, our partner Make-A-Wish is throwing an evening celebration at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore. With the holiday season among us, now is a great time to give back to the community. You can start the holidays the right way by sponsoring a Make-A-Wish â€œWish Kid.â€?
Sponsors of the Season of Wishes celebration will join each other along with wish families at the Hyatt Regency, Thursday, Dec. 6 from 6-9 p.m. The goal of the celebration is to raise enough money to allow for 25 wishes to come true! Enjoy seasonal cocktails of different varieties, delicious fare and a stunning view, while meeting with wish families who have benefited from Make-A-Wish. Become a part of the unforgettable wish experience by providing for a wish!
How To Become A Sponsor
The average cost for a wish at Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic is $7,500. With your individual or group donation, you will be responsible for making a wish come true! Along with your contribution toward a wish, your sponsorship will also get you 10 tickets to the event, social media recognition, mention in the press release, logo/name recognition in the event program, the opportunity to interact with Wish Kids at the event and acknowledgement in the Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic quarterly newsletter.
You can be a part of a childâ€™s wish with your contribution. You can influence a child like Lauren, who wished to go to Hawaii to swim with dolphins, or Lonnie, who wished to be a superhero. Know that your sponsorship has helped grant the wish of a child with a life-threatening medical condition. Your sponsorship can bring hope and strength to a child today.
