Event attendees will have the opportunity to participate in over 30 different basket raffles as well as a chance to participate in a silent auction. All proceeds for the event will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 

“We have about 40 packages that vary in categories from beauty, dining, experiences, family, home, pampering and sports,” Event Marketing Senior Specialist from Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, Kendall Glasser said.

Some of these items include a Kate Spade Tote valued at $328, a Blackstone Pizza Oven valued at $400 and a Private Toledo Zoo Behind-The-Scenes Tour for Four valued at $650. A list of all the items that will be auctioned can be found here.

The morning will also feature an inspiring wish story from a local wish child, Glasser said.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation was created in 1980 to grant wishes of children between the ages of two and a half and 18 years old with critical illnesses. Since 1980, the foundation has granted over 550,000 wishes worldwide.
