Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic’s annual “Evening of Wishes” will be April 25 from 6 p.m. to midnight at The Ritz-Carlton Washington, D.C.
The black-tie gala helps raise funds for the organization’s efforts around granting life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. The gala will celebrate the local wishes the organization has granted while raising funds for hundreds of future recipients.
The event features a special live wish experience, silent and live auctions, dinner, dancing and many memorable moments with local wish children.
Some 840 local children are expected to be diagnosed with a critical illness this year alone and for each wish granted, there is at least one more local child waiting for a wish, organizers said.
