Wish Ball is the signature fundraising event for Make-A-Wish® Illinois, attracting nearly 1,000 of the area’s philanthropic minded movers and shakers who are passionate about children with life-threatening medical conditions. Set at the legendary Soldier Field, the evening will include celebrity entertainment, live and silent auctions, dinner and dancing. The event is expected to raise $1 million dollars to support the mission of Make-A-Wish.
Guests at the event will also hear moving remarks from a local wish family and have the opportunity to meet a few children who will serve as Wish Ambassadors for the evening.
Mission: Make-A-Wish® Illinois grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their lives with hope, strength and joy. Since being founded locally in 1985, the chapter has granted more than 11,000 wishes and continues its mission to share the power of a wish® with children across the state.
In 2013, Make-A-Wish Illinois granted 698 wishes across the state and plans to grant even more this year. Wishes are granted to children with life-threatening medical conditions such as cancer, heart conditions, muscular dystrophy, renal disease and many more. Wishes can be an important part of the treatment process, empowering children to make decisions and providing strength to comply with medical treatments.
