2017 Evening of Wishes - Kentucky Derby

Gala 2017

Evening of Wishes – Kentucky Derby Soiree was a Huge Success! Thank You!

This year’s annual Kentucky Derby Soiree was held on May 6, 2017 at the Hilton of Jackson. Doors opened at 4:30 to allow the guest to mingle and bid over the silent auction items. There was a large screen set up where guest could bid on horses and watch the race. There was a bowtie and bonnet contest, wine pull, silent and live auction with a seated dinner. Make-A-Wish Mississippi celebrated the 2,000th wish and had a special surprise wish reveal. Five-year old Blake, who has battled Leukemia for the last two years, received his wish for a custom Ole Miss golf cart.

With the support of our sponsors, donors and community, we raised enough to grant 46 wishes of children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Thank you!
