Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Wish Ball – “An Evening of Wishes”
May 3, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Hudson Valley will honor legendary composer, Frank Wildhorn, with the Chris Greicius Award. Frank is being honored for his generosity in sharing his time and talent to raise funds to help make wishes come true, and for lending his beautiful music to help tell the story of Make-A-Wish.
This award commemorates the memory of seven-year-old Chris Greicius, who wished to be a police officer for a day in 1980 while he battled Leukemia. His story inspired a dedicated group of volunteers to launch the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which has become the largest wish granting organization in the world, granting over 300,000 wishes since its inception.
