Founded as one of the earliest Make-A-Wish chapters, Make-A-Wish® Colorado is celebrating its 35th anniversary and has granted more than 5,000 wishes to Colorado children. Wish Night, Make-A-Wish Colorado’s annual fundraising evening, honors individuals and organizations that help Make-A-Wish Colorado share the power of a wish®.
On February 23, 2018, attendees at Make-A-Wish® Colorado’s Wish Night will will be treated to a rare glimpse into the magical journey of granting a wish. Held at the Hyatt Regency Denver Colorado Convention Center, Wish Night will include a live and silent auction and conclude with dancing and an intimate acoustic set by Joe King and Isaac Slade from The Fray.

Wish Night will also spotlight eight-year-old Gabby, who is battling leukemia. You'll follow her story from the declaration of her wish, “I wish to be famous!” to the granting of that wish. The insider’s view will include a look at the creativity and dedication that goes into developing a wish and the amazing magic that community members make happen behind the scenes. At the end of the journey, Gabby will take the stage to announce the musical performance of Joe King and Isaac Slade from The Fray.
In addition to Gabby’s story, Wish Night will also feature musical and dance performances by several Wish Kids, including a duet by 18-year-old Wish Kid Kenna and Joe King.
“We are so excited to share the wish process with our guests,” said Joan Mazak, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish Colorado. “It’s a humbling, inspirational and profound experience to grant a wish to a child who is battling a critical illness and we want to share those emotions with our supporters.”
