For more than a decade, Make-A-Wish Connecticut’s Celebrating Wishes Ball has been a fall fixture at the Greenwich Country Club. This year, the event returns on Saturday, Nov. 4 with a fresh look and a new name, Wish Night. Reimagined with a travel theme that highlights far-flung wish destinations, guests may choose to upgrade their adventure by purchasing multi-stop ticket packages, including access to an exclusive Patron Party cocktail event and VIP After Party.
“There’s only one way to describe this year’s event: high octane,” said Robert Valle, Wish Night Committee member and professional event planner. “Bold colors and rich metallics will bring a fun, modern edge to the old-world elegance of the Greenwich Country Club.” Event Co-Chairs Brooke Bohnsack, Gina Filippelli, Sharon Plater, and Julie Rivard are keeping much of this year’s surprises under wraps, but one special feature is front and center: the chance to win 250,000 TrueBlue Rewards Points courtesy of JetBlue. “This very generous donation of airline miles for our Wish Night prize drawing will go a long way toward helping us raise the funds we need to reach our goal of granting more than 250 wishes this year,” said Pam Keough, Make-A-Wish Connecticut president and CEO.
