The 'Black and White' themed 6th annual Wishmaker's Ball will make it possible to grant the wishes of 11 local children through the support of the community.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southern Florida is pleased to announce the 6th Annual Wishmaker’s Ball will be held on January 20, 2012. The venue for this year’s ball will be the Hilton Naples located at 5111 Tamiami Trail North in Naples.

The theme for this year’s event will be a magical ‘Black & White’ evening that will create a rainbow of wishes for children facing life-threatening medical conditions in our local community. Guests will enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by dinner and live entertainment provided by The Steve Chase Society. There will also be a wide array of silent and live auction items to entice bidders of every age and personality type.

“There are children facing life-threatening medical conditions in Southwest Florida who are waiting for their wishes to be granted. Events like the Wishmaker’s Ball are an essential part of making wishes come true,” says Norm Wedderburn, president and CEO of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida. “We hope to raise enough funds through this event to grant the wishes of 11 children in the local community.”

Community involvement is needed to make the Wishmaker’s Ball a success. There are many ways to show support – by becoming a sponsor, donating an auction item or attending the event, added Sandra Buxton, this year’s Ball chair.

The presenting sponsor for this year’s ball will be BNY Mellon Wealth Management. Other major sponsors include: Arthrex, Vein Specialists, Dr. Laquis, Seminole Casino, First National Bank of the Gulf Coast, The Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida, Capital Bank, Avow Hospice, Norman Love Confections, Charlie McDonald Photography, Hilton Naples, and Soderquist Photography.
