Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina is thrilled to host our annual signature event, The Wish Ball on Friday, February 21, 2014 at the Ritz-Carlton Charlotte.

The evening includes an incredible cocktail hour, elegant dinner prepared by the Ritz-Carlton master culinary team, music and dancing to the sounds of Flashback the Party Band, and silent and live auctions. Most important, The Wish Ball is an evening of charitable giving, raising more than two million dollars over the years toward granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in our community.

  • There’s been a “hairy” situation at the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office during the month of February - but don’t worry it’s for a good cause! Sheriff’s Deputies are not usually allowed to have beards, but this month, Deputies can make a donation to Make-A-Wish in return for a no-shave waiver that allows them to have neatly groomed facial hair. The campaign is part of a larger effort to raise money for their Trailblaze Challenge team. “What I enjoy the most is being able to see the smiles on the children’s faces that I am raising the money for,” says Corporal Shawn Wildes, a Trailblaze Challenge participant. “Make-A-Wish allows children battling critical illnesses to build the hope and strength they need to fight harder and see the impossible become possible.” Learn more about the spring hike at:
