Connecticut residents have a great opportunity to be a part of the Make-A-Wish Connecticut mission this spring. On March 25, come out to Make-A-Wish Connecticut's Evening of Wishes Gala held at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville. The Gala goes from 6 p.m. to midnight and is black tie optional. Reserve your spot today!
The 2017 Evening of Wishes Gala will feature dinner, dancing, and an auction. This year's event centers around the sports-themed wishes of past and future Wish Kids. Sports wishes are some of the most common wishes, such as the wish to meet a sports star or spend the day as a player on their favorite sports team. With many sports getting into full swing by March, it's the perfect time to celebrate sports wishes!
Several different ticket options are available. Individual tickets are $250 each, or you can jump up one level to the All-Star Ticket for $300. Those with parties of 10 can choose from an Event Table package for $2,500 or an All-Star Table for $3,000. The All-Star options include the benefit of having your name listed in the event journal.
In line with the sports theme, this year's special guests will be some familiar names. The Master of Ceremonies is Chris Connelly, host of the ESPN "My Wish" series. The hosts are Kerri-Lee Mayland of NBC Connecticut and Renee DiNino or iHeart Media. To top it all off, there will also be a special appearance from WWE Superstars who have played a role in the Make-A-Wish Mission. You won't want to miss out!
