Make-A-Wish Arizona Black & White Wish Ball

| June 28, 2017 | Parties

More than 700 guests celebrated a dreamy evening at the Make-A-Wish Arizona Black & White Wish Ball at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa.

THE PARTY The gala’s mission was evident—grant as many wishes as possible. In total, the evening raised over $2.2 million, thanks to the work of Make-A-Wish Arizona and Wish Ball presenting sponsor Good Night Pediatrics—enough to grant an estimated 320-plus wishes. THE GUESTS Make-A-Wish Arizona President and CEO Elizabeth Reich says this was one of the most successful years the gala had ever seen. Renee Parsons—businesswoman and co-founder of The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation—reflected on the evening.“[Make-A-Wish is] about bringing the healing power of hope to some very special kids. Bob [Parsons] and I are happy to provide our support and bring a little joy to Wish families.” THE HIGHLIGHTS Seven Make-A-Wish Arizona kids shared stories about how the nonprofit granted their wishes that evening. The live-auction was a smash hit, with donors Bob and Renee Parsons and Clive Cussler offering generous donation matches to the winning bids. -Taylor Transtrum
