Make-A-Wish® Arizona is pleased to announce the 2019 Make-A-Wish Arizona Wish Ball, presented by Phusion Projects will be held Saturday, March 30 at The JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort and Spa.
Amy Walters and Stephanie Linnenkamp will co-chair the 2019 event and developed the theme, Wishes in Bloom. Thanks to corporate sponsorships - like Title Sponsor Phusion Projects - 100 percent of the dollars raised will be used to grant wishes to local children and families.
At last year’s Wish Ball, Make-A-Wish Arizona honored Renee Parsons, who has played a critical role in the growth of the chapter over the past six years as a member of the Board of Directors. During her speech, Renee pledged $1 million from The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation toward future wishes. The Parsons donated an additional $300,000 from the Foundation later in the event, and $200,000 personally during the live auction. Long-time donors, the Parsons have gifted more than $9 million to Make-A-Wish Arizona, including the donation of The Parsons Wish House, which more than tripled the organization’s physical space.
Wish Ball will also include a wish kid moment, silent and live auctions and musical entertainment.
