Two Events Benefit Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina This Spring

This spring, don’t miss out on two great opportunities to help grant wishes for kids in your community. Wine Women & Shoes and the 2015 Wish Ball are coming up soon, and now is the perfect time to register and get your tickets. Wine Women & Shoes takes place March 26 and the Wish Ball is on April 18.

Get Your Outfit Ready For Wine Women & Shoes

On March 26, put on your favorite outfit and pair of shoes and show your style at Wine Women & Shoes in the Burney Center at UNC Wilmington. Not only will you get to spend a fabulous evening with fellow shoe lovers, you’ll also get to try delicious wines and foods, see the latest fashions, and help grant wishes for children in eastern North Carolina. The event goes from 6:30-10:30 p.m. and features a fashion show, great auction, a Key-to-the-Closet raffle and much more.

Purchase your tickets today on the event’s website, where you can choose the ticket or package that’s right for you. Single ticket options include Single Admission ($85) or a VIP ticket ($135), which includes round trip transportation to the event in a Mercedes Benz Shuttle, express check-in and a VIP Swag Bag. If tonight is a special girls’ night out, try the Girlfriend’s Package ($300), which includes four tickets and gives you a savings of $10 per ticket, or treat yourself to the VIP Girlfriend’s Package ($500), which includes four tickets, luxury shuttle service, express check-in and an exclusive VIP Swag Bag for each person.

If you can’t attend but want to support Wine Women & Shoes, it’s easy! You can donate auction items or simply make a monetary contribution at the event’s website.

Go Around The World In 80 Wishes At The 2015 Wish Ball

This year’s Wish Ball theme, “Around the World in 80 Wishes,” will celebrate the journeys that children are able to experience through Make-A-Wish. Join Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina at the Wish Ball April 18 to take part in the celebration and help more of these wishes come true. This black tie event takes place at the Raleigh Convention Center (500 South Salisbury Street, Raleigh) starting at 6 p.m. 2,900 children have had their wishes granted during Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina’s 29-year history, and the Wish Ball program will take you on a journey highlighting some of these wonderful wishes. 

In addition to moving Wish Stories, the Wish Ball will also feature a VIP cocktail party, plated dinner and great live and silent auctions. Afterwards, end your evening at the Wish Ball with the exciting after party.

Individual tickets are $250 each, and you can get yours today by contacting Christine Casey at CCasey@eastnc.wish.org or 919-821-7111. Sponsorship packages are also available, ranging from the Star Sponsor at $1,000 to Presenting Sponsor at $50,000. Learn more about sponsorship opportunities here.
