Event Information

Event Info:

Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina is thrilled to host our 14th annual signature gala, The Wish Ball on February 10, 2017 at the Westin Charlotte. The chapter’s largest single event of the year, the Ball brings together over 600 guests from across the Charlotte and surrounding communities to celebrate the Power of a Wish.

Look forward to cocktail hour, seated dinner, live and silent auctions, raffle opportunities, live entertainment, and countless surprises both for and from local wish families!

Most important, the Wish Ball is an inspirational opportunity to directly support the wishes of local children, helping enable the chapter to grant over 300 wishes in the upcoming year.
