Wine for Wishes is hosted by Make-A-Wish Mid-South’s Associate Board, a group of Memphis-based young professionals who have committed to the organization’s mission and support Make-A-Wish through event-based fundraising.
They’re bringing you a fun-filled wine tasting with live music, a wine pull, door prizes & catered hors d’oeuvres, and more. Tickets are only available by advance purchase and will not be sold the day of the event, so plan accordingly!
What You’re Supporting When You Party
You may already know that Make-A-Wish grants wishes for children with critical illnesses all over the country — making their dreams to go, to meet, to be, or to have — a reality. The average cost of a wish is $8,392.98. All expenses associated with a wish are covered by Make-A-Wish, and in the Mid-South specifically, Make-A-Wish will create more than 280 unique wish experiences this year.
Every wish carries transformative power. Per Make-A-Wish, a recent study has confirmed that wish experiences are more than just a nice gift, they play a key role in a child’s journey back to health. Wishes create positive emotions and hope for their future, equipping children to better fight against their critical illnesses. When you give to wishes, you’re giving to something that’s making a huge difference for kids locally in our community.
