Jacksonville (August 23, 2022) – Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida projected to raise over $500K through the 2nd Annual Fields Auto Group Wishmaker’s Ball at the Sawgrass Marriott Resort and Spa – raising enough funds through sponsors, donors and community partners to grant 60 wishes to children battling critical illnesses in Northeast Florida. Having served more than 6,000 local children and families for nearly 30 years, Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida aims to bring more hope and strength to children in the local community.
The Wishmaker’s Ball will feature the stories of more than 5 wish families who have received the transformative impact of a wish. They will share how their Make-A-Wish experience helped them overcome feelings of traumatic stress and restored hope for their family. Guests of the event will be immersed in the Make-A-Wish mission while enjoying a 3-course-dinner, bidding in live and silent auctions, and donating to grant future wishes.
Make-A-Wish has been granting wishes for over 42 years, bringing hope to more than 600,000 sick children and their families. The Make-A-Wish vision is to grant the wishes of every eligible child. This event will help continue to bridge the gap between a wish waiting and a wish granted.
