PRLog - May 16, 2014 - DALLAS -- Harper House is proud to donate this year’s “Thank You” awards for the 18th Annual Wish Night® Event. North Texas’s signature black-tie gala celebrates courageous children battling a life-threatening medical condition and helps raise funds to enrich their experience with hope, strength and joy – all with the magic of a wish. The past 17 years Wish Night has raised more than $11 million to grant more than 1,490 wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. This year, Wish Night hopes to raise more than $1.3 Million to help continue the Make-A- mission. Wish Night, however, is more than just a wonderful evening and fundraising event; it is an evening celebrating the magic of a wish come true and the heroes that help make it happen!
President & CEO of Harper House, Jack Harper says, “It’s heartbreaking to see any child battling a life threatening condition. Knowing that this event impacts thousands of children’s lives by making their wishes come true, puts a smile in my heart.”
The black-tie event is on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Tx at 6 p.m. Tickets are still available. To keep up with the latest news, you can follow the Make-A-Wish North Texas Chapter at www.ntx.wish.org or Make-A-Wish America at www.wish.org.
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Founded in 1980 in Phoenix, Arizona, Make-A-Wish strives to grant a wish to every qualified child referred. Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved – wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.
Make-A-Wish® North Texas serves 161 counties throughout East, West and North Texas and has granted more than 7,500 wishes to date. Make-A-Wish strives to provide the wish child and family with special memories of joy and laughter, which are a welcome respite from hospitals, doctors and treatment programs.
