Last year's Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles Wishing Well Winter Gala raised more than $1 million – an event record – and had more than 750 guests in attendance. This year's event could be even bigger! The 31st annual Wishing Well Winter Gala is at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, Dec. 3. Cocktails start at 6 p.m. with the dinner and program starting at 7 p.m.
The annual Wishing Well Winter Gala is the perfect event to connect with business leaders, philanthropists, medical visionaries, entertainment executives and celebrities in a celebration of the children and families whose lives have been touched by their wishes. It's also a time to honor leaders in our community who make these wishes possible.
Last year's gala honored Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant, sbe Chairman and CEO Sam Nazarian and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Thirty wish families joined the star-studded evening hosted by E! Television’s Giuliana Rancic, and notable attendees included Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Kelly Osborne and Andy Garcia.
