The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Georgia and Alabama will hold its 7th Annual Celebration of Wishes Gala, to celebrate the Hope, Strength and Joy.
October 15, 2011
Commemorate the thousands of wishes that the Make-A-Wish Foundation has been able to grant children suffering from life-threatening conditions at the 2011 Celebration of Wishes Gala. Black-tie patrons gather to honor those who helped make those dreams come true. After the awards and auctions, enjoy.
This year, WSB-TV news personalities Monica Pearson & John Bachman will host the evening while Kevin Sharp, former wish recipient and award-winning vocalist will provide entertainment. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on luxury auction items featuring exciting getaways and interesting collectables.
Each year the Gala honors four outstanding volunteers for their continuous leadership and commitment to the Georgia and Alabama Chapter.
This year’s Power of a Wish Award honors AT&T’s Jonathan Sheriffs’ long-time commitment to aiding the Make-A-Wish® mission. AT&T Senior Vice President Gary Ludgood will be presented with The Debbie Tillman Award for his outstanding leadership on the chapter’s dedicated Board of Directors. The Hope, Strength, and Joy Award honors Cobb County Master Gardener Bill Powell for his passion to deliver hope through granting wishes, strength through his fundraising initiatives, and joy through his commitment to our mission. The William Blake Kuller “Indomitable Spirit” Award honors Kelli Tracy, commending her persistence, bravery, humor, integrity, dedication, and compassion as a wish parent who by sharing her son’s story shares the power of a wish®.
