2016 Evening of Wishes

Alanha and Mom Tiffany
Make-A-Wish Mississippi hosted an Evening of Wishes on May 7th, where we raised enough money to grant over 40 wishes!
The event took place at the Jackson Country Club where guests bid at live and silent auctions and enjoyed a seated dinner.  Everyone gathered around to watch the Kentucky Derby while they were getting judged by wish kids Harrison, Hannah, Lily, Alanha and Cade for the Bowties and Bonnet contest. There was a photo booth with props and a Wine pull. Randy Watkins interviewed wish kid Alanha who wished to go to New York City and her mom Tiffany. They gave a powerful testament of the positive impact that wishes have on the lives of wish kids and families. It’s always great to hear about wish kids, but hearing from wish kids and their families is a completely different experience.  Make-A-Wish® Mississippi thanks our generous sponsors. It's their contributions that enable us to grant wishes for local children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Thank you Sponsors
