Wish Night®

Ashlin's wished to be in a music video that goes viral

Please join us for Wish Night, Make-A-Wish Wisconsin's signature gala.

Thursday, April 2, 2020
The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee

In 1994, Les Weil & Jodi Peck put forth extraordinary effort to create Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin’s first gala in memory of their daughter, Kelly Weil, who had recently passed away after a long battle with bone cancer. Twenty-five years later, the event has grown into Make-A-Wish Wisconsin’s signature fundraiser, raising more than $5.5 million and providing hope, strength and joy to more than 900 Wisconsin children.

Join us in grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses by attending Wish Night 2020. During the 2019 event guests experienced and helped grant Ashlin's wish to be in a music video that goes viral. The world premiere of Ashlin's wish was first seen by all in attendance and guests were asked to help make her wish go viral on Facebook and YouTube. In the first week of it's release, over 500,000 liked and/or viewed her video. You can watch her video on YouTube now and Ashlin's "Behind the Scenes" video featuring her family and how much her wish meant to them.

When you attend Make-A-Wish Wisconsin's Wish Night, you are sure to find this event to be inspirational and uplifting.

The evening will include hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, silent auction, raffle, wine pull, diamond dig, dinner, live auction and an inspiring program featuring wish children and their families. Wish Night will raise enough funds to help grant more than 100 wishes for Wisconsin children with critical illnesses.
