The Make-A-Wish Australia Adelaide Branch Gala Ball Committee would like to thank you for your generous support of the Gala Ball held on 30 April 2016, celebrating 30 years of magical wishes in South Australia.
Make-A-Wish wishes give seriously ill children hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness, and joy from their incredible wish experience. The entire wish process – from the anticipation, to the wish itself, and the memories that it creates – provides a welcome diversion for children undergoing difficult medical treatments. A wish can also be a positive experience for families in challenging times.
As a leading wish granting Australian charity for sick kids we know that there are thousands of children with life-threatening illnesses who would benefit from the healing power of a wish, so we’re working hard to grant more and more each year.
We managed to raise over $120,000 for children with life-threatening medical conditions. With your incredible support and the generosity of everyone who attended on the night we are able to grant up to 20 vital wishes that help build resilience and are an essential complement to medical treatment.
Once again we would like to thank you for your generous support and look forward to working with you in future years to realise the wishes of seriously ill children.
