Tickets are still available online or by phone for A Wishful Evening Gala to benefit Make-A-Wish® Northeast New York on March 16, 2013 at Saratoga’s Hall of Springs.
This 15th annual Gala celebrates the 1,350 wishes granted to local children with life-threatening medical conditions since the chapter’s founding 26 years ago. Proceeds from this event will help fund the approximately 100 wishes to be granted this coming year.
The Gala will feature current and former Wish Children and Teens sharing their stories, musical entertainment with “The Accents” band and silent and live auctions. Unique auction items include: a Saratoga Day at the Races; a Ski with an Olympian at Lake Placid package; a Finger Lakes Getaway; a Relaxing Lake George Weekend; and a striking white gold and diamond heart necklace.
Tickets for the black tie event are $160 each and may be purchased at 518-782-4673, or online.
