The Make-A-Wish Foundation, which is committed to improving the lives of children with life threatening conditions, will hold its sixteenth annual Gala Ball on Saturday 30 April at the Adelaide Convention Centre. While this is the sixteenth Ball for the Adelaide branch of the organisation, it also marks 30 years of Make-A-Wish operating in South Australia, which is a brilliant achievement.
The Gala Ball itself will feature a gourment three-course meal for all guests, with unlimited drinks and live entertainment to accompany. One guest will also win return airfares for two and accommodation in London. Tickets for the event are priced at $185 per person or $2200 per corporate table.
The Ball, having sold out last year and raising over $170,000, expects to have over 700 guests with a fundraising target of $180,000. This target, with the average wish costing $6000 to achieve, will help grant a wish to over 35 children.
Christine Mossop, who is chair of the Make-A-Wish Adelaide Gala Ball Committee, says that the Gala Ball is the leading fundraiser for the organisation to achieve its goals and that the South Australian branch has granted 800 wishes since its foundation in 1986.
