Make-A-Wish Gala 2018: A Slam Dunk for Wishes

| April 7, 2018 | Parties

Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island held their annual gala Where Wishes Take Center Court on April 7, 2018 at the InterContinental Boston. Guest joined emcee Liz Brunner for an inspirational evening - including a tribute to longtime wish granting partner, the Boston Celtics - to help create life-changing wish experiences for children in Massachusetts and Rhode Island with critical illnesses. The recipient of the Wish Hero Award, the Boston Celtics leadership, including Rich Gotham and Steve Barnes, along with Celtics forward Abdel Nader, accepted the award for their extraordinary partnership in transforming the lives of wish children. Boston Celtics legends Cedric Maxwell, former Finals MVP and 2-time NBA champion, and Brian Scalabrine, 2008 Boston Celtics champion, attended along with Massachusetts wish recipients who chose a Celtics related wish experience. The program featured wish recipients, wish parents, and wish granters who shared powerful stories of children, families, and community members while guests cheered for every wish child’s slam dunk.
