Make-A-Wish Central & Western North Carolina is thrilled to host our first Virtual Kentucky Derby Classic on Saturday, September 5, 2020! Put on your Derby hat, pastel bow tie, or stay in your pajamas and join us for our Virtual Pre-Derby Party!
Throughout the LIVE program, starting at 5:30 p.m., you'll hear inspiring stories from special guests and wish kids, bid on live auction items, and watch the power of a wish! Attendees will also be able to donate directly to help grant life-changing wishes for children battling critical illnesses.
Your support will make wishes possible!
For a child with a critical illness, hope is everything. Right now, there are over 400 kids and counting who are waiting for their wishes to be granted. But Make-A-Wish is committed to ensuring that no child waits even one unnecessary day to experience the hope and joy that a wish brings. Now more than ever, our wish kids need stars like you to deliver hope by helping grant life-changing wishes.
With your support, we can raise at least $150,000 during the Virtual Kentucky Derby Classic to grant more than 25 life-changing wishes for children battling critical illnesses.
Your gift today will help bring experiences of hope and joy to wish kids that are isolated and vulnerable, help us innovate rapidly to grant wishes in new ways now and into the future, and help us prepare now to quickly grant all the wishes that have been waiting due to COVID-19 delays. Together, we can continue to be a light of hope throughout this time of crisis and beyond.
Bring hope for wish kids today - and tomorrow.
