Power of A Wish Gala

 Transform lives, one wish at a time. 
Make-A-Wish has been granting life-changing wishes in Western New York
for over 25 years - an accomplishment worth celebrating! 

At this year's gala, our guests will experience for themselves the profound impact on a child’s physical and emotional health. They will discover that a wish is much more than a singular moment in time, but an experience that has a lasting impact on a child’s life, and on the people that surround them. 
Be a part of celebrating the transformational power of a wish while enjoying a fantastic evening!


A Message from the 2019 Gala Chair Couple:
Dear Friend of Make-A-Wish, 
We invite you to join Make-A-Wish® for the 2019 Power of a Wish Gala. This year’s gala will build upon the momentum of last year’s event. In 2018, more than 500 guests came together to raise over $320,000 to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses.
A wish isn’t just a nice, heartwarming experience. It gives kids the stamina to face their illness and fight it. Please join us for an inspirational evening!

Impact of A Wish
In the fight against a critical illness, wishes spark renewed energy, strength and encouragement for every child and family on their journey. Most importantly, wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that give children a higher chance of survival.  
When a wish is granted, a child replaces:
fear with confidence   •  sadness with joy  •   anxiety with hope
