Make-A-Wish Illinois is hosting two can’t-miss events over February and March. Wishes Uncorked and A Million Dreams are two fun-filled nights, benefiting Make-A-Wish Illinois to make dreams come true for local children with life-threatening medical conditions. Each of these events has a unique twist, so read on to learn more about the details.
From 7-10 p.m. on March 2, 2017, Wishes Uncorked will take place at Ovation (2324 Fulton St., Chicago, Ill.). This year’s Wishes Uncorked will feature a wine tasting, cocktail party and a unique small art auction. The art featured are pieces from local Chicago artists, while the spectacular wine will come from some of the finest wineries across the country.
You and your friends can bring home this awesome art by participating in the silent auction through the night. Meanwhile, you get to enjoy 3 hours of beer, wine, cocktails and delicious bite-size appetizers. You and your friends would love to enjoy a night like this anyways, but the fact that it benefits Make-A-Wish Illinois makes it even more worthwhile.
