Deets: Join Make-A-Wish on Wednesday, December 7 as we honor the heroes of Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles - Oscar-nominated actor Robert Downey, Jr., talent manager Scooter Braun and the Los Angeles Kings. This magical night to remember will include a special performance by Grammy-nominated singer Tori Kelly, a cocktail hour, seated dinner, celebrity host, awards presentation and silent/live auctions.
Event proceeds will go towards granting wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions in Greater Los Angeles. This year, the Los Angeles chapter will grant 350 wishes – and there are nearly twice as many eligible children waiting their turn.
At the annual Wishing Well Winter Gala, entertainment executives, celebrities, top business executives, community and civic leaders, medical professionals and philanthropists celebrate the children and families whose lives have been changed forever by the power of a wish. During the past three years, these meaningful events have collectively raised almost $3 million for wish kids living in Greater Los Angeles. Past honorees include sports stars Kobe Bryant, Landon Donovan and Oscar de la Hoya; philanthropists Sam Nazarian and Michael Rosenfeld; and medical pioneers Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, OneLegacy and Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA.
In addition to the award presentations, the evening will include entertainment, cocktails, sit-down dinner, one-of-a-kind silent and live auction items and wish granting. Additional award honorees will be announced shortly.
