2015 welcomes the 15th annual Make-A-Wish Gala Ball, held at Adelaide Oval, Friday 1st May.
This year, guests will be treated to a beautiful gourmet three course meal, along with unlimited drinks (yes that's right people), and live entertainment. Does it get any better than that?! Yes, yes it does. With every ticket sold this year, the ticket number will go into the draw for one lucky guest to win return airfares and accommodation to Paris for two. PARIS.
Christine Mossop, Chair of the Make-A-Wish Adelaide Gala Ball Committee, says, "With each wish equating to approximately $5,000.00, the Adelaide branch of Make-A-Wish grants an average of 35 wishes per year, with the Make-A-Wish Gala Ball a massive contributor.
“Having now granted over 700 wishes at the Adelaide Branch (7,000 nationally) since inception in May 1986, the gala ball is our major fundraising event to grow these numbers and grant more valuable wishes to help seriously ill children fulfil their dreams and escape the more difficult side of their lives,” says Christine Mossop.
Wishes granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation has resulted with international research showing significant positive impact on the health and wellbeing of wish children. 97% of parents that were surveyed observed a noticeable improvement in their child’s mental and emotional health following the granting of their wish. Physical health was also seen to improve in 75% of cases.
This year, the 15th installation expects over 600 guests including VIPs, socialites, celebrities, media, and philanthropists. The night aims to raise over $150,000.00 for Make-A-Wish to help grant 30 children with a life threatening medical condition their cherished wish.
“After a sold out year in 2014 and raising over $137,000.00 with a target of $100,000.00, we look forward to another successful year for a fantastic cause,” says Christine Mossop.
