Wishes Light the World is theme for 18th annual
Gala for Make-A-Wish® Northeast New York
Mark your calendars and plan to attend the annual Gala to benefit Make-A-Wish® Northeast New York, set for March 19, 2016 at Saratoga’s Hall of Springs.
This 18th annual Gala, themed Wishes Light the World, celebrates the nearly 1,600 wishes granted to local children with life-threatening medical conditions since the chapter’s founding 29 years ago.
The black tie event will feature current and former Wish Children and Teens sharing their stories, musical entertainment and dancing with Grand Central Station, as well as spectacular and unique silent and live auctions. This year, a premier live auction item is a week’s stay at Casa Piazza, a fully-staffed luxury villa in the exclusive oceanfront community of LaPunta, Manzanillo, on Mexico’s “Pacific Riviera!”
The 8,000 square foot villa features five bedrooms with private balconies, 6.5 baths, and includes your own private chef, house manager, maids, houseman, and more! Ideal for five couples or two families with children, up to 12 people in all! Photos and more information on this amazing property at www.casapiazza.com.
Tickets for the black tie event are $160 each, and proceeds from this event will help fund the nearly 100 wishes to be granted this coming year. Invitations go out in February, and more information will be available online at www.neny.wish.org and at (518) 456-9474.
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. Make-A-Wish Northeast New York serves the 15 counties comprising the 518 area code. The chapter grants around 100 wishes each year and has granted nearly 1,600 since 1987.
