MAKE-A-WISH® MID-ATLANTIC HOSTS THIRD ANNUAL EVENING OF WISHES MAY 21

Washington, DC – Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic hosts the third annual Evening of Wishes gala to help make wishes come true for local children battling life-threatening medical conditions. Supporters from around the region are invited to attend and help share the power of a wish®.  

When: Saturday, May 21, 2016
6:30 p.m. – 12 a.m. 

Where:
Mandarin Oriental
1330 Maryland Avenue SW
Washington, DC 20024

What: Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic presents the elegant Evening of Wishes gala. Guests enjoy dinner, dancing, a silent auction, and take part in a special live wish experience. Attire is black tie.

Why: To raise critical funds and celebrate the mission and work of Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic. This year alone, 840 local children are expected to be diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition – and for each wish granted, two more local children are waiting for a wish. Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic needs the community’s support to close the gap between children who are eligible for a wish this year and those who receive one.

About Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic
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 Mid-Atlantic serves children who reside in central and southern Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland and northern Virginia. Founded in 1983, the Mid-Atlantic chapter has granted more than 8,700 wishes in the Mid-Atlantic region since its inception. Wish kids face any number of life-threatening medical conditions such as cancer, pediatric AIDS, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Duchene’s muscular dystrophy, kidney and heart disease. This year alone, 840 local children are expected to be diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. However, for every wish granted, at least two more local children are waiting. The community has the opportunity to make an impact today by helping Make-A-Wish to reach hundreds of kids whose wishes would go otherwise unanswered this year.
