Comedian Seth Meyers will be the headliner for Make-a-Wish Illinois' annual fundraiser, the Wish Ball, on Saturday, May 3, at Soldier Field. Emmy award winning Meyers is best known for his work on "Saturday Night Live" as well "Late Night with Seth Meyers" that can be seen on NBC weeknights.
This high profile fundraiser will also honor Chicago's professional sports teams for their support of children with life-threatening medical conditions through their wish granting efforts for Make-A-Wish. The black-tie event will also include a cocktail reception, dinner, a raffle and live and silent auctions. And for the first time, partygoers will have the chance to dance the night away to live music on the 50 yard line of Soldier Field!
Guests at the event will also hear moving remarks from a local wish family and have the opportunity to meet a few children who will serve as Wish Ambassadors. Tickets are $600. For more info, click here or call 312.602.9474 (WISH).
Help make dreams come true for those who need them the most!
