Our 2018 Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island Gala was held on April 7, 2018, in Boston. With the theme of "Where Wishes Take Center Court," supporters gathered with us to watch as imagination soared, potential became bold reality, and wish children's lives were transformed. Together, we celebrated our entire team of supporters and paid special tribute to a true partner in our mission, our 2018 Wish Hero Award recipients, the Boston Celtics.
Our annual Make-A-Wish Gala features a festive cocktail reception, lively auctions, a sit-down dinner and inspiring mission-based program, and an Afterglow Reception — making it as memorable an event as it is meaningful. The Make-A-Wish Gala is our signature annual fundraising event, and aims to fund over 100 wishes in one night alone, to provide strength, hope, and transformation for children with critical illnesses in our community.
