Thank you for joining us at Wish Ball - West Michigan, Friday, May 11, 2018 at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids.

We are delighted that you joined us Friday night at Wish Ball 2018 to help build wishes together for West Michigan wish children. What an amazing evening celebrating the wishes that have already been granted and raising important funds to grant wishes for more Michigan children!

It's because of the generosity from our community that wishes like Hunter's wish to be a spinosaurus are possible. Thank you so much for your support of our wish kids and families!

I hope that you enjoyed the wonderful evening with our 800 guests and the program emceed by Jack Doles and Maranda, which also featured our incredible honorees:
  • Individual Honorees: Dan and Lou Ann Gaydou

This year, we expect to grant wishes to more than 450 Michigan children, and the entire team at Make-A-Wish Michigan is so grateful for all that you do to transform lives, one wish at a time. Thank you for the difference you make to children with critical illnesses in our community.
