The  Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southern Florida is pleased to announce they will be presenting their Wishmaker’s Ball on March 18, 2011 at the Club at The Strand of Naples.

The fifth annual ball, which begins at 6:00 p.m., will feature a cocktail hour with silent auction, dinner, a live auction, and an Adopt-A-Wish opportunity. Jimmy Keys, one of Naples’ favorite entertainers, will perform after dinner.

“We need the help of the community to make the Ball a success. Our mission is to grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions and we need local businesses and individuals to get involved in any way they can. Whether becoming a sponsor, donating an auction item or attending the event… we just want the community involved. We have children in Southwest Florida waiting for their wishes to be granted and through our fundraising efforts we hope to make at least 10 of them come true that evening,” said Norm Wedderburn, president and CEO of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida.
