Lexus of Adelaide has signed on as the naming rights sponsor for the 20th anniversary of the Make-A-Wish Gala Ball. This night will take guests back in time, celebrating the roaring 20s in style and elegance, to support the extraordinary work of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Celebrating 35 years of granting wishes for critically ill South Australian children, this year’s Gala Ball will be held on Saturday, 21st August at the Adelaide Convention Centre and aims to raise over $120,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Adelaide branch.
Lexus of Adelaide General Manager, Wade Sander, says “We’re very excited to be on board for the fourth year, especially after the break last year.”
“The Make-A-Wish Gala Ball is an incredibly uplifting fundraising event, and positively contributes to the health and wellbeing of all the children and families involved.”
Chair of the Make-A-Wish Adelaide Gala Ball Committee and a volunteer with the Make-A-Wish Australia Adelaide Branch, Frank Jackowiak, says, “Wishes give children and teenagers battling life-threatening medical conditions hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness and a lasting memory of their incredible wish experience for them and their families.
“The Gala Ball is our leading fundraising event. The Make-A-Wish Foundation doesn’t receive any government funding, so without our supporters these children’s wishes simply wouldn’t be able to come true,” says Frank Jackowiak.
Hosted by radio duo, Bec and Cosi, with performances from Bellarouge Dance Company, Entertainment Adelaide and All About Her, the 2021 Make-A-Wish Gala Ball is set to be a memorable evening.
Guests will be treated to a gourmet three-course meal, an unlimited drinks package and will be able to bid on some amazing auction items including luxury holidays and exclusive experiences auctioned by Troy Tyndall, with all proceeds going to Make-A-Wish.
With over 400 guests expected to attend, the Make-A-Wish Gala Ball is a highly anticipated event on Adelaide’s social calendar for an incredible cause.
The money raised in Australia goes directly to Make-A-Wish Australia. The charity aims to grant 500 wishes a year, with between 30-50 magical wishes being granted in South Australia.
Guests are encouraged to add a spark of the roaring theme in their outfits. Whether it is a headpiece, or statement jewellery, adding a simple accessory will elevate your look.
Tickets are priced at $170 per person or $2,000 for a corporate table and can be purchased online from Sticky Tickets here.
