Your Support Created Magic at the Make-A-Wish Gala
We extend our sincerest gratitude to our friends and supporters who helped make our Make-A-Wish® Gala an inspiring evening! In particular, we thank Steve and Deborah Barnes together with the Bain Capital Community Partnership, and The Nelson Family Foundation for their generous support as Presenting Sponsors.
The 10th annual event, held on April 11 at the InterContinental Boston with the theme of “Where Magic Begins,” drew more than 500 guests to enjoy a celebratory evening of wish stories and entertainment as they were introduced to wish children, their families, and several special guests. Liz Brunner, president of Brunner Communications, continued her tradition of serving as Gala emcee, kicking off the night with our wish children magicians. The program featured Chef Duff Goldman of Food Network fame; Peter Miller, professional angler and host of Bass 2 Billfish; and master illusionist Landon Swank – all of whom celebrated the magic a wish can bring into the life of a child and reflected on their experiences as wish granters.

Generosity filled the air, and including proceeds from this year’s milestone celebration, more than 1,100 wishes have been made possible through the Gala in its 10-year history. We thank all of our sponsors, guests, participants, event volunteers, and other supporters for joining us as “magic makers,” helping to raise funds to create joy for our wish children in the coming months!
