Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic hosts the second annual Women in Wishes luncheon to help make wishes come true for local children battling life-threatening medical conditions and raise awareness about the work of its Women’s Leadership Council. Supporters from around the region are invited to attend and help share the power of a wish®.
Who: Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic and its Women’s Leadership Council. The council works to raise critical funds for Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic. It is comprised of leaders and entrepreneurs from the legal, financial, nonprofit, government, hospitality, pharmaceutical and professional sports industries.
When: Monday, June 22, 2015
11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Where: The Westin Georgetown, 2350 M Street NW, Washington, DC
What: Guests will hear a wish story from a local wish child, bid on wonderful silent auction items, enjoy a three-course meal and champagne toast, network and help to share the power of a wish®. Thank you to our top corporate sponsor, Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP.
Why: To raise critical funds and celebrate the mission and work of Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic. The organization fulfills hundreds of wishes each year. However, 840 local children are expected to be diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition this year alone – and for each wish granted, at least two more local children are waiting for a wish. Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic needs the community’s support to close the gap between children who are eligible for a wish this year and those who receive one.
