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.
This year's Wish Night chairs are Dan and Terese Einhorn. Dan and Terese have been involved with Make-A-Wish since their daughter Emma received her wish to go to Disney World in 2011. The family, who has always been involved with various charitable organizations, decided to focus their community volunteer activities around causes relating to childhood cancer after Emma was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of three. This led them to Make-A-Wish, where Terese became a wish grantor, enjoying giving back to this wonderful organization that meant so much to Emma during her recovery. Additionally, Dan and Terese both work with the Leukemia Lymphoma Society as well as Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Emma, who is now a happy and healthy 14 year old, also enjoys giving back to Make-A-Wish.
Join us in granting 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.
We are also in need of silent and live auction items. If you have an item or service to donate, please download the donation form, fill out the form and email to email@example.com, fax to 262.781.3736 or mail it to Kelsey Rice at Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, 11020 W Plank Ct, Suite 200, Wauwatosa, WI 53226.
