Giving The Gift Of A Wish
On May 19th, 850 guests attended Wish Ball 2018 and heard how a wish starts an impact that stretches positively through children, families, volunteers, donors and more.
Patt McGann, comedian and wish father, kicked off the celebration during the VIP reception. He shared his son's journey and how it helped Elliot and his family as a whole... as well as cracking a few jokes.
Our evening was hosted by the talented Jon Hamm and co-hosted by Wish Alumni Luis Carranza and Judaea Brown.
Jon Hamm brought wish children from all different ages on-stage to talk about their inspiring stories and to showcase their many talents.
Wish parents Marcie and David Flores shared their son's wish story. Their son Joshua lives with leukodystrophy, a disorder that progressively attacks the nervous system.
Joshua's wish was granted in 2014 to make a delicious pizza in Italy. He still talks about his wish with a smile.
The excitement and generosity in the room was absolutely incredible, making this year a huge success. The funds raised are vital to ensuring children with critical illnesses are given life-changing wishes.
