Make-A-Wish North Texas is honored to announce President and Mrs. George W. Bush as Honorary Chairs for its 19th
Annual Wish Night
gala, which helps the organization grant hundreds of wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions each year. This year’s event is presented by Helzberg Diamonds®
and will be held on Saturday, May 16, 2015 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel.
“Make-A-Wish North Texas is privileged to have the support of previous wish granters, President and Mrs. George W. Bush, for this year’s annual Wish Night,” said Make-A-Wish North Texas President and CEO, Scotty Landry. “Not only is this an incredible honor for our organization, but a once in a lifetime and truly magical experience for our wish kids, as well as their families.”
Since the first Wish Night
event in 1997, Make-A-Wish North Texas has raised more than $12.48 million and granted over 1,675 wishes for local children. In fact, 2014 held a record-breaking event, raising more than $1.48 million.
Prior to joining Make-A-Wish North Texas’ Wish Night
as Honorary Chairs, President and Mrs. George W. Bush granted two wishes: first in May of 2010, to a then 11-year-old wish kid Jared from Florida who had been diagnosed with a brain tumor, and then again in May of 2011 to a then 13-year-old wish kid Logan from Ohio, who had been living with Acute Renal Disease.
